Keegan Soehn bounces to surprise victory at Elite Canada trampoline meet | Medals for BC athletes!

Keegan Soehn of Red Deer, Alta., kicked off his 2012 trampoline season with a bang on Friday, edging brother Kyle for the men’s title at Elite Canada.

Top-ranked Jason Burnett of Toronto, who needed to finish either first or second to clinch Canada’s lone Olympic berth in men’s trampoline, faltered in the final and wound up 10th in an open competition for both youth and senior competitors.

A silver medal winner at the last Olympics in 2008, Burnett will have another chance to book his return ticket to the Games at a second qualification meet at the end of April in Gatineau, Que.
