Freddie Woodward served notice of his potential with a fourth place finish in the Group A 3m Springboard on his European Junior Diving Championship debut in 2011.
He made his senior domestic breakthrough in 2013, starting the season with an impressive fourth place finish in the 3m Springboard at the British Gas Diving Championships in Plymouth.
He then returned to the European Junior stage for the third time and landed a medal, teaming up with Jack Haslam for silver in the 3m Synchro.
After an encouraging 3m Springboard bronze at the British Gas National Cup to start the 2014 season, Woodward became British champion for the first time in June, winning the 3m Springboard and 3m Synchro double, pairing with Sheffield teammate and double Olympian Nick Robinson-Baker for the latter.
He made his Commonwealth debut later in the 2014, finishing 10th in the 1m Springboard before winning 3m Synchro bronze for England with Robinson-Baker.
