There’s no rest for the wicked in the world of amateur athletics. Just one week after finishing one spot shy of the podium in individual trampoline at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, Jason Burnett of Nobleton was back in the air in Calgary this weekend, competing at the Canadian Games. There he earned a second-place finish behind only an opponent from Great Britain, and actually ahead of fellow Canadian Keegan Soehn, who earned the gold for Canada at Pan Am. Such is the life of an amateur athlete. “You have to pick yourself up and move on,” said Burnett. “There’s always a competition to prepare for, or train for, so you have to look forward to that.”
