Rosie MacLennan and Sarah Milette won silver in the women's synchronized trampoline final at the 2018 world trampoline championships in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Friday. The Canadian duo finished with a total score of 47.500 in the final.  

"It went really well today," MacLennan said. "I think we were really focused on trying to stay in the middle, stay high, stay clean, and obviously stay together."

Milette had never won a world championship medal in synchronized trampoline prior to Friday.

"I was a little bit nervous at first," Milette said. "But we stayed focused and did a safe routine which we both knew we could do really well."
