New Zealander Dylan Schmidt has won the bronze in the men’s gymnastic trampolining at the Tokyo Olympics.

He followed his first round score of 52.415 with a second-round 59.705. This ensured the 24-year-old qualified third into the final.

In the final-which included 8 jumpers-he improved again, recording 60.675 to finish third.

China’s Dong Dong took second with 61.235 with gold going to Belarussian Ivan Litvinovich on 61.715.

It’s New Zealand’s first medal at Olympic level in gymnastics and trampolining. Five years ago Schmidt finished seventh at the Rio Games.

New Zealander Sarah Walker, who won BMX silver at the 2012 London Olympics, presented Schmidt with his medal.
