Great Britain's Bryony Page wins her second individual trampoline gold medal at the Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships in Birmingham.

Great Britain ended the Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships in Birmingham on a high as Bryony Page took home her second gold medal in the individual women's trampoline.

The 32-year-old - who won the trampoline world title in 2021, the same year she clinched Olympic silver - produced a scintillating routine in front of the Birmingham crowd to score 56.680 and finish atop the eight-gymnast standings.

Page posted an unrivalled difficulty score of 15.800 en route to glory, while China's Xueying Zhu (56.460) and the USA's Jessica Stevens (55.740) took home silver and bronze respectively.

Page's inaugural individual world title came during the pandemic-affected era of sporting competitions, and the 32-year-old was overjoyed to celebrate her achievement in front of an ecstatic crowd this time around.

"I really wanted to go for my harder routine so I'm so glad I pulled it off in the best way in front of the home crowd," the world champion told BBC Sport after standing atop the podium.

"I'm just a little bit in shock and super happy. I was so nervous. I woke up really early in the morning with nerves. I won the World Championships in 2021 during Covid time so we couldn't really have a crowd so it's just amazing that I've been able to make it up by having it here."

Page's compatriot Isabelle Songhurst placed seventh in the individual final with a total of 54.240, prior to which the pair also won women's synchro bronze with 48.830 on the board, as the USA took home the title with China in second.

GB's last medal of the Championships came in the all-around team final, which saw tumblers, trampoline gymnasts and double-mini competitors combine for three absorbing rounds of action.

A total of 26 points saw the host nation comfortably take third place, three points below champions USA and runners-up Portugal, and GB were also represented in both of the men's trampoline finals.

Zak Perzamanos's overall score of 59.990 saw him place fifth in the individual contest, as China's Langyu Yan took the crown with 60.690, finishing just a hundredth better off than compatriot Zisai Wang (60.680) in silver.

Perzamanos also teamed up with Corey Walkes for the men's synchro final, as the duo finished just outside the medals in fourth position with 49.520, while Germany's Fabian Vogel and Caio Lauxtermann won gold with 51.130.
