34th FIG Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships
TOKYO (JPN)
November 28 - December 1, 2019

Competition format

Individual Trampoline

Trampoline gymnasts perform two routines in the first round of a competition (qualifications). Scores from their first and second routines are added together, forming a total qualifying score. 

 

Individual competition

At the World Championships, the top 24 gymnasts (maximum three per country) qualify to the semi-final, where they perform one routine. The eight top scorers from the semi-final (maximum two per country) qualify for the final, where they perform one routine again.

In semi-finals and finals, gymnasts perform in opposite qualifying order, meaning the gymnast with the lowest qualifying score performs first, followed by the gymnast with the second lowest qualifying score, and so on. Score-wise, all start with a clean slate. 

 

Trampoline team competition

Trampoline teams consist of a minimum of three and a maximum of four gymnasts. 

The top five teams from the qualifying round go forward to the finals, where only three gymnasts compete per team. Each gymnast performs one routine in the Team Final.
