Jason Burnett competed in his second consecutive Olympic Games at London 2012 where he was one of the eight finalists in the men’s trampoline event.
Burnett competes with the motto of “Go big or go home”. To win his Olympic silver medal at the 2008 Games in Beijing, he performed the most difficult routine of the competition. He is also the world record holder for difficulty in a routine. At a World Cup meet in Davos, Switzerland in June 2010 he performed a degree of difficulty of 18.8, breaking his own previous mark. In training Burnett has performed a routine with a very high degree of difficulty of 20.6.
Burnett trains under coach Dave Ross at the Skyriders Trampoline Place in Richmond Hill with Olympic champion Rosie MacLennan.
