3 Time Olympic Medalist
"I’m proud to work with a company dedicated to introducing kids to the sport I love by offering them the safest trampoline available. Springfree Trampoline is the only trampoline I would recommend for your family and your home."
When trampoline became a full medal sport for the Summer Olympics in 2000, her childhood dream became a reality. Karen is one of Canada’s most decorated Olympic athletes with a bronze medal in Sydney 2000, a silver medal in Athens 2004 and a silver medal in Beijing 2008.
Although trampoline is an individual sport, Karen attributes much of her success to the team of people around her. The support from her parents and husband, Olympic medalist Mathieu Turgeon, provides her with the balance she needs to push forward. Her coach, David Ross, continues to help her be the best athlete she can be. The support she receives from her sponsor, Springfree Trampoline, allows her to pursue her athletic endeavours. Karen is also active in her sport as she sits on Gymnastic Canada’s board of directors.
Beyond trampoline, Karen has a passion for cooking and is currently studying to become a holistic nutritionist. She stays active through Pilates, snowboarding and other sports.
Karen strives to share the message of healthy active living and participation in sports for children.
