Coach David Ross asks trampolinist Rosie MacLennan, “Why not?” when her thoughts turn negative and she feels like she won’t get through hard times. It’s Coach Ross’ way of getting her head straight, and it’s what kept her mindset positive. With his words, she pushes past all those mental barriers that stop her from being the best, even in the worst of times.
Rosie is the first trampolinist to ever win two Olympic gold medals in a row. Working with Coach Ross, she’s also become the first Canadian woman to win two gold medals in one event at the summer Games.
