Alicia Blagg

Alicia Blagg was touted as a hot prospect after winning 1m Springboard gold as a 13-year old at the 2010 British Gas National Cup.

She was handed her Commonwealth debut the same season, finishing eighth in the 1m, 10th in the 3m and fourth competing with City of Leeds teammate Rebecca Gallantree in the 3m Synchro.

Blagg won her first Grand Prix medal in 2011, again combining with Gallantree for 3m Synchro silver in Fort Lauderdale, before making her World Championship debut in Shanghai.

The pair continued to improve in 2012, setting a personal best 302.40 to qualify second for the European Championship final before ultimately finishing fifth, then placing seventh on Blagg’s Olympic debut at London 2012.

Blagg and Gallantree made further headway in 2013, winning two silvers in the FINA Diving World Series before claiming bronze at the European Championships then finishing sixth at the World Champs.

The 2014 season was a historic one for the Leeds diver as she landed her first British 3m Springboard title in June, then won her first international title in August, teaming up with Gallantree again to win Commonwealth 3m Synchro gold.
