Great Britain's Bryony Page won her second individual trampoline world title on Sunday at the 2023 Trampoline & Tumbling World Championships in Birmingham.

The two-time Olympic medallist won gold with a score of 56.680, which Page achieved with a rare 15.8 difficulty.

Reigning Olympic champion Zhu Xueying of China earned silver with the USA's Jessica Stephens claiming bronze.

Great Britain's Izzy Songhurst finished seventh.

In a dazzling display at the Utilita Arena, Page executed a routine which very few women have attempted previously.

"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," said Page.

"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, 32, became Team GB's first ever trampoline medallist when she won silver at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games which she followed up with a bronze at Tokyo 2020.

Earlier on Sunday, Page and Songhurst won bronze for Great Britain in the Women's Synchronised Final with a score of 48.830, beating Japan in fourth on 48.490. USA took gold and China won silver.

"I think we knew we were capable because we just came off the back of winning a World Cup gold in Bulgaria but I think to do that in front of a home crowd was just extra special," said Songhurst.

The Utilita Arena in Birmingham is hosting the Trampoline, Tumbling and DMT World Championships from 9-19 November.

In 2022, Great Britain achieved nine podium positions and reached the top of the medal table for the first time in the history of the championships.

The event is also the primary qualification event for the Olympic discipline of trampoline at the 2024 Paris Games.
