Who invented the trampoline? by TJ
George Nissen invented the trampoline in 1936 with the help of his training coach Larry Griswold. He invented the trampoline at the age of 22. In 1791 with Larry Griswold he founded the USTA ( United States Tumbling & Trampoline Association). He made the first trampoline with a piece of scrap steel and tire inner tubes. He has been honored by the sports Trampolining and Gymnastics. His interest came from going to a circus and he was a gymnast himself. He made a few failed prototypes of the trampoline. He labeled his invention tumbling device’. Later on he changed the name of his invention to the ‘trampoline’. Trampoline was added to the Olympic program in 2000. George Nissen died on April 7th 2010.
