The group competed in different categories at the Trampoline and Tumbling Elite Challenge at the U.S. Olympic Training Center this past weekend.

Kaimuki High School student Kayttie Nakamura won bronze in the synchronized trampoline event, and placed 4th in the double mini-trampoline category.

Thirteen-year-old Maia Amano won silver in the 14-15 individual trampoline division, and took home two other bronze medals.

In the Senior Men's individual trampoline event, 27-year-old Shane Doi of Kalihi placed 11th, qualifying him to compete in the U.S. Elite National Trampoline Gymnastics Championships in Milwaukee next month.
