TOKYO, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- China booked all two tickets to Tokyo Olympic Games at FIG Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships here on Saturday.

According to the Tokyo Olympic qualification system, up to 16 Olympic qualification berths offered for the individual trampoline specialists were all settled.

Both Chinese trampolinists Gao Lei and Huang Yanfei dominated the top spot during the men's and the women's individual trampoline semifinals, securing full Olympic quotas at the World Championships.

"Our goal here is to gain the full quotas to Tokyo 2020. And we did it. That was the most important task for us here," said Lu Chunlong, the national team manager who achieved the 2008 Olympic gold medal.

Japan captured both men's and women's synchronized trampoline title. Russia obtained two golds on the women's tumbling and men's double mini-trampoline.

The four-day World Championships will end on December 1.
