KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Canadians Rosie MacLennan and Jason Burnett dominated the competition at the Elite Canada trampoline meet on Sunday.

MacLennan, competing for the first time since winning her first world title last November in Sofia, Bulgaria, topped the field in the women's final to finish with a total of 102.725 points, including the scores from Saturday's qualification.

Samantha Sendel of Toronto finished second and Samantha Smith of Toronto was third.

"I just wanted to put down a decent score for the beginning of the year to get that out of the way," said Sendel. "Rosie and I push each other a lot more in training now. We both want those bigger routines."

Burnett, the silver medal winner from the 2008 Beijing Olympics and seven-time Canadian champion, breezed to victory in the men's event in his first major outing in over six months, winning gold with a total of 169.725 points.

Keegan Soehn of Red Deer, Alta, won silver and Curtis Gerein of Kelowna, B.C., took the bronze. Soehn also won a gold medal in the double mini to cap a strong two-event performance.
