At the 2007 World Championships, Chinese trampolinists had gone 1-2 – with Ye Shuai winning the gold medal over Dong Dong. Dong Dong competed in Beijing and was joined by Lu Chunlong, who had not yet competed at a World Championship. But Lu, who had won three of the five World Cup meets in 2008, led the qualifying, and then won the gold medal with a finals performance that edged out Canadian Jason Burnett, who performed a very high difficulty routine, with Dong Dong taking the bronze medal. The defending champion, Yury Nikitin (UKR), placed fifth. The 2004 bronze medalist, Henrik Stehlik (GER), was eliminated in the qualification after supposedly having missed the target area. Video of the event showed this was incorrect, but replays are not allowed to review decisions, and he was eliminated despite a protest.
