China's Dong Dong claimed Olympic gold in the men's individual trampoline event at the North Greenwich Arena with a breathtaking sky-high routine.

The 2008 bronze medallist outshone team-mate and defending Olympic champion Lu Chunlong to score 62.990, finishing ahead of Russia's Dmitry Ushakov in silver medal position with Lu taking bronze.

Canada's Jason Burnett, who narrowly missed out on gold at the last Games to win silver, hit the edge of the bed after only his first skill to finish last in the final in a devastating end to four years of preparation.
