Rosie MacLennan leads Canada's trampoline team into Pan Am Games
Gold medallist joined by three other decorated athletes
Rosie MacLennan will lead the way for Canada's Pan Am trampoline team.
MacLennan, a gold medallist in both Pan Am and Olympic competitions, was one of four athletes and two alternates named to the squad Thursday.
Men's trampolinist Keegan Soehn, along with MacLennan, will try to defend their gold medal victories from the 2011 Pan Am Games in Guadalajara.
Karen Cockburn and Jason Burnett round out the squad, with Samantha Sendel and Keegan's older brother Kyle Soehn serving as alternates.
"The Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games are a great opportunity for our athletes to compete and showcase their sport at home," said Peter Nicol, the president and CEO of Gymnastcs Canada.
"We are very excited to have this experience and help prepare for Rio in 2016."
