DAVOS, Switzerland, June 13, 2010 – Steven Gluckstein of Atlantic Highlands, N.J., and Logan Dooley of Lake Forest, Calif., won the synchronized trampoline gold medal at the 2010 Nissen Cup, the second World Cup event of the Trampoline World Cup series, at the Indoor Sport Davos in Switzerland.
Scoring a 49.80, Gluckstein and Dooley won their second World Cup synchro gold. The duo won the USA’s first men’s World Cup gold medal when they clinched the synchronized trampoline title at the 2009 Ostend World Cup. Jason Burnett and Charles Thibault of Canada took second (49.10), while Peter Jensen and Daniel Praest of Denmark finished third (49.0).
Dooley finished seventh in individual trampoline. Dong Dong of China won the trampoline title.
The Nissen Cup, which debuted in 1958 and is the oldest international tournament in trampoline, is held once every two years in Switzerland. It is named in honor of George Nissen, the inventor of the modern trampoline who passed away in April of this year at the age of 96.
