Injuries

In October 2014 he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in a training accident. He had surgery on the injury the same month, resulting in around six months off training. By July 2015, just prior to competing at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, ON, Canada, he said he had recovered around 80% of his full strength. (Twitter profile, 05 May 2015; yorkregion.com, 07 Jul 2015; youtube.com, 11 Dec 2014)

In 2010 he injured his right leg while doing tricks for a demo reel as a part of his stunt man activities. The injury included a broken fibula, dislodged ankle joint and torn ligaments. He underwent surgery to insert plates and screws in his leg. After six months of recovery he returned to the sport in January 2011. (jasonburnett.ca.com, 23 May 2012)

Start sporting career

He first started gymnastics at age eight before moving to trampoline at age 10. He began competing at age 14 when he joined Airborne Trampoline Club in Cambridge, ON, Canada. (jasonburnett.ca, 27 Mar 2012; jasonburnett.ca, 02 Jul 2014; olympic.ca, 20 Oct 2014)

Reason for taking up the sport

His parents enrolled him in gymnastics as a way to channel his excess energy, and at the end of every class he was allowed to jump on the trampoline, which quickly became his favourite activity. He also says the sport helped him build confidence, as he was shy as a child. (jasonburnett.ca, 27 Mar 2012; jasonburnett.ca, 02 Jul 2014; olympic.ca, 20 Oct 2014)
