More gold for junior divers in Austria
13th July 2012
The British Gas GBR Diving team scooped two golds and a bronze on a successful third day at the European Junior Diving Championships in Graz, Austria.
City of Leeds diver Matty Lee started the ball rolling with gold in the Group B 3m Springboard.
Having qualified first from the preliminary, Lee dominated the final to win by nearly 20 points as he finished on 446.20 for the title.
Germany's Cao-Tri Le Nguyen (427.55) took silver while City of Sheffield's Ross Haslam jumped from seventh in the preliminary into third in the final to join his British teammate on the podium.
By winning bronze on 414.20, Haslam emulated his brother Jack who had the same result three years ago.
The British pair trailed Russia's Ekaterina Ukolova and Elena Chernykh going in to the final dive but outscored their rivals to take the title on 278.13.
Amber Sheppard (Crystal Palace DC) and Lydia Rosenthall (City of Leeds) were also in action in Austria, both reaching the final of the Group B 1m Springboard.
Shepperd ultimately scored 308.20 to finish eighth while Rosenthall was 11th on 289.50.
