George Nissen, a 16-year-old gymnast and a member of his school's diving team, attended a circus in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 1930. There, on seeing the trapeze artists dropping into a huge safety net at the end of their routines, something clicked him for making the performers' act yet more spectacular.

He came up with a piece of equipment, which he named as a bouncing rig. His next step was to prepare a rectangular steel frame in his parent's workshop.

Then, with Larry Griswold, his gymnastics coach at the University of Iowa, in 1934, he added more bounce into it by using tyre inner tubes for connecting the canvas to the frame. Later, these were replaced by coil springs.

The trampoline's use outstretched to the training of American pilots and navigators during the Second World War, and not just remained restricted to circus tumblers and children. Trampoline was also used in the training of Soviet and American astronauts.

His passion for jumping when came in association with his bachelor's degree in business resulted in spreading a craze all over the world. In 1964, the first Trampoline World Championships were held at the Royal Albert Hall, London. In the year 2000, trampolining was designated as an actual Olympic sport.
