Scottish Nationals and Open Diving Championships 2019 Review
A select team of divers from Plymouth have just returned from competing at the Scottish Nationals and Open Diving Championships held in Edinburgh, where they were up against some talented competitors.
Ollie Heath and Theo Stevens dived up into group C boys across all 3 boards. This was their first competition at this level and they dealt with the experience in an admirable manner. Ollie’s best performance was on platform and Theo the 3m board. Both boys have just been selected for the Swim England Z camp – an 18 month programme consisting of 7 intensive training camps.
Katie Martin dived for the group C girls and Summer Radcliffe for the group B girls; they qualified for both of their springboard finals. Katie was the winner on the 1m board and proudly took top position on the podium to claim the gold medal; she just missed out on a medal on the 3m board finishing in 4th. Summer performed a confident and elegant round of dives to win the bronze medal on the 1m board and finished 5th on 3m.
Zach Anderson dived up into group B for all 3 boards with his best result on the 3m board. He qualified for the final where he finished in 6th position amongst a tough competitive group most of whom were much older.
Fourteen year old Josh Freeman dived up into group A for all 3 boards. His best performance was on platform where he just missed out on the final after a failed armstand dive which left him in 7th position following a solid set of required dives. Connor West in the same platform event successfully made the final and finished 5th.
Frances Burdett competed on the 1m and platform for group A girls. She showed true determination and courage after falling flat on her back from 10m and finished the last 2 dives to gain the respect of all present. Cody Powell-Tuckett also dived off platform for group A qualifying in 1st position with a personal best score; in the final she finished 5th. Emily Martin qualified in 1st position for the Women’s platform but unfortunately had to withdraw from the final. Cody also competed in this event and finished 4th.
Matthew Dixon upped his game after qualifying for the Men’s 1m in 4th position to win the silver medal in the final. In the Men’s platform Matthew went on to win his second silver medal. Connor, despite picking up an injury also made the Men’s platform final and finished 5th.
Summer and Josh competed in the fun team event and finished 7th with a consistent set of dives and a very in tune synchro dive.
The divers were coached throughout the competition by Alex Rochas and Sally Freeman.
