DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Nov. 3, 2014 – Team USA, led by individual 2013 World medalists Kristle Lowell and Alex Renkert, has arrived in Daytona Beach, Fla., for the 2014 World Trampoline and Tumbling Championships. The event, which features competition in individual and synchronized trampoline, double mini-trampoline and tumbling, will be held at the Ocean Center and competition gets underway Friday, Nov. 7, with the qualification rounds.

Lowell, who trains at Branch Gymnastics in her hometown of Three Rivers, Mich., is the reigning women’s World champion in double-mini, while Renkert, who hails from Indianapolis and Geist Sports Academy, grabbed the men’s World double-mini silver medal in 2013. In addition to Lowell and Renkert, two of last year’s stand outs, Logan Dooley of Lake Forest, Calif./World Elite Gymnastics, and Charlotte Drury of Laguna Niguel, Calif./World Elite Gymnastics, are also expected to compete this week. The Olympic alternate for the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games, Dooley was the first U.S. man in more than a decade to advance to the men’s trampoline final at a World Championships. The complete U.S. roster is listed below.
