Smith will be making her Olympic debut in Tokyo, after being an alternate in 2012 and failing to qualify for the team in 2016. She has grown stronger in recent years, earning a gold at the Lima 2019 Pan American Games and a bronze at a World Cup competition in Baku, Azerbaijan shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic shut the world down. 

“As always, Canada once again has a one-two punch in this sport. I can’t wait to watch Sam and Rosie rise, twist and flip above it all,” said Team Canada’s Tokyo 2020 Chef de Mission, Marnie McBean.

The women’s trampoline competition in Tokyo will take place on July 30 (Day 7) at the Ariake Gymnastics Centre.
