Dong, who Friday was a member of the winning team in trampoline together with Tu Xiao, Gao Lei and He Yuxiang, said that he was very satisfied with his performance in the final and he did his best at the key moment.

Another silver medal for China was won by the men's tumbling team, which got 109.900 points and was overtaken by only 0.800 points by Russia. The bronze went to Britain with 106.400 points.
