Nicole Ahsinger and Jeffrey Gluckstein won national titles in women’s and men’s trampoline, respectively, at the USA Gymnastics Championships in Milwaukee, Wisconisn, on Saturday.
Ahsinger, 19, was the lone woman competing for the U.S. in trampoline at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016, placing 15th. She finished Saturday’s competition in first place, while Hally Piontek won the bronze and Clare Johnson the silver.
Gluckstein emerged on top in the men’s trampoline competition and won his fourth U.S. title, with Stewart Pritchard finishing in second and Paul Bretscher in third place. The title was Gluckstein’s first since 2014, when he won for the second year in a row to add to this title in 2011.
Ahsinger and Johnson started the week by winning the women’s synchronized trampoline event, and Gluckstein and Aliaksei Shostak won the men’s synchro. It was the third U.S. synchro title for Gluckstein.
The championships are part of the selection process for the U.S. team that will compete at the 2017 world championships in trampoline and tumbling and rhythmic gymnastics. The meet will also determine the national teams.
