You know those epic cutaways in movies and on TV that show long shots of Superman flying to the rescue, or taking off immediately after saving the day? That’s what Associated Press photographer Ashley Landisphotos of trampoline events at the Tokyo Olympics evoke.

You know those epic cutaways in movies and on TV that show long shots of スーパーマン flying to the rescue, or taking off immediately after saving the day? That’s what AP通信 photographer Ashley Landisphotos of trampoline events at the 東京 Olympics evoke.

Athletes soar past lights and pop from dark backdrops as the trajectory of bounces catapults them through the air. です, なので 英国人 bronze medalize Bryony Page put it last week, “like driving your own roller coaster.”

Trampoline competition, which ended Saturday, is an athletic solution to the question so many humans have asked for thousands of years: What if I could fly? Turns out you can, to an extent, with a lot of training and ability and commitment. The tradeoff: It can be perilous.

“Trampoline isn’t a sport I thought of as dangerous, but after seeing athletes fly 30 feet in the air and then nearly fall off the trampoline, I have changed my mind,” Landis says. “I don’t know of another sport where the coach has to follow the athlete with a giant pillow in case they get slightly off center.”

That was most apparent, 彼女が言います, when Aliaksei Shostak of the アメリカ flipped beautifully in the air, and then his right leg plunged to the ground between trampoline springs.

“Fortunately, he was not badly injured,” Landis says. “It’s a high-risk, artistic sport with very little room for error.”
