Britain’s Bryony Page has won a silver medal in the trampoline at Rio - captivating a prime-time TV audience in the UK in the process.

The 25-year-old, who finished 10th at last year’s trampoline world championships in Odense, Denmark, scored 56.040 from her routine to finish runner-up behind Canada’s Rosannagh Maclennan.

Maclennan compiled a score of 56.465 to bag the gold medal, while world champion Dan Li of China sealed the final podium place with 55.885.

To put the success in context: no Brit has qualified for the final much less won a medal.
