Team GB’s Bryony Page bounces her way to bronze in Olympic trampolining
- Page adds Tokyo bronze to silver won in Rio
- Team GB’s McCormack and Whittaker sure of boxing medals
Bryony Page claimed her second Olympic medal on the bounce with bronze in the women’s trampoline event at the Ariake Arena.
The Crewe-born 30-year-old, who won a surprise silver in Rio in 2016, scored 55.735 to finish behind the Chinese pair Zhu Xueying and Liu Lingling.
Her British teammate Laura Gallagher failed to make the final but Page had qualified in third place after her two routines.
She led with the two Chinese athletes still to go but a pair of strong routines ensured the Briton had to be content with bronze.
Caroline Dubois is through to the quarter-finals in the women’s lightweight boxing after a points win over Rashida Ellis of the USA, while two medals have been guaranteed in the men’s events. Pat McCormack will pick up at least a welterweight bronze after a victory over Bobo-Usmon Baturov, and Ben Whittaker will do likewise after his light-heavyweight win over Brazil’s Keno Machado.
In the K1 canoe slalom there was disappointment for Britain’s Bradley Forbes-Cryans, two penalties meaning the Scottish athlete finished in sixth place. The Czech Republic’s Jiri Prskavec took the gold.
