    Background: The young U.S. trampolinist, 17-year old Alexandra Nicholson, retained her world women's title at the World Trampoline Championship at Johannesburg in South Africa on Saturday (23 March).

    Miss Nicholson -- defending the title she won at Stuttgart two years ago -- finished with a total of 72.10 points. She was strongly challenged by fellow American, Marilyn Stieg, who finished second with 71.50 points.

    Third was Jennifer Liebenberg of South Africa, with 70.90 points.

    Richard Thison of France emerged as the new men's world champion, replacing Paul Luxon of Britain, who turned professional after winning the individual title at Stuttgart.

    Thison scored 71.10 points, ahead of Mark "Stormy" Eaton of the United States with 71.00 points and Peter Hurle of Australia with 70.00 points.

    About 50 competitors from 10 countries competed in the two-day championships, which started on Friday (22 March). Japan, with 10 competitors, had the largest squad, followed by the United States with nine.
