Long-awaited return results in World Cup bronze for Page

Bryony Page was delighted as she stepped up her return from injury by winning a bronze medal at the Trampoline World Cup in Switzerland.

Page won a silver medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games but has been blighted by an ankle injury and has not competed at World Cup level for two years.

She was back in action in Arosa and finished third behind Russia’s Susana Kochesok and Hanna Hancharova of Belarus in the women’s individual final.

Kochesok won with a score of 55.865 points, ahead of Hancharova with 55.230 while Page took the bronze medal with 55.120 points.

Page admitted to suffering from jelly legs during her routine but was just pleased to be back in competitive action after so long out.

She wrote on her Twitter page: “Very pleased to start off my return to international competition with a bronze medal at the Arosa World Cup.

"A bit of jelly legs for my pike triff but fought hard for a solid routine in the finals today!"

The 27-year-old was crowned British Champion in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and won team gold at the 2013 World Championships, and team gold 2014 and 2016 European Championships. But her career highlight came in 2016 when she claimed an Olympic silver medal in Rio.
