22 August 2014

Sarah Barrow became Great Britain’s first female individual European platform diving champion since 1927 with an impressive performance at the European Championships in Berlin.

"It was a really consistent performance and I knew I could perform my dives like that," - Sarah BarrowBarrow finished in third place in this morning’s prelims and went into the final with confidence while taking on World medallist Yulia Prokopchuk (Ukraine) and European medallist Noemi Batki (Italian).

The Commonwealth medallist executed her dives well and score 76.80 for three of her dives and finished in the gold medal position with a total score of 363.70.

“It’s awesome," Barrow said. "Going into the final I wanted to win a medal but I knew that gold would be tough knowing how strong the European field is.

"But I kept positive and tried to focus on my own competition. Jane [Figueiredo] really helped me to keep that focus. It has been a long season with injuries in the middle so I needed that.

"It was a really consistent performance and I knew I could perform my dives like that. I enjoyed the whole competition and I am so happy now."

Batki took silver with 346.40 points and Prokopchuk won bronze with a score of 341.35.

Chris Mears and Jack Laugher finished in fifth place in the 3m Synchro with 391.98 points.
