Canada won bronze in the team all-around final at the 2018 world trampoline championships in St. Petersburg, Russia on Thursday. 

The Canadians were one of five teams that qualified for Thursday's final, but began the day in fourth place.  Two-time Olympic champion Rosie MacLennan and Sarah Milette helped bump Canada up to third with the top team score in the women's synchronized event.

"We're really excited," MacLennan said. "It's the first time that we've had a cross-disciplinary team event, so it was awesome to be able to come together and put out some solid routines and end up on the podium."

This was the first year that a world championship event included the team all-around competition. The event combines individual trampoline, synchronized trampoline, tumbling, and double-mini trampoline, with both men and women competing in each discipline.
