Decorated gymnast collected 3 Olympic medals over 4 Games
Karen Cockburn leapt to some of Canada’s greatest heights. Now, the trampolinist is sticking her landing.
On Sunday, the three-time Olympic medallist announced her retirement from the sport at the 2017 Canadian Championships in Trampoline Gymnastics in Oshawa, Ont.
“For as long as I can remember I’ve been wearing the red and white. It has been a great honour to represent my country for the past 25 years,” said Cockburn.
