Sylvester sparkles with golden start to European Juniors

11th July 2012

Megan Sylvester scored gold for the British Gas GBR Diving Team on day one of European Junior Championships in Graz, Austria.

City of Sheffield diver Sylvester, who won Platform silver in the Group B age group four years ago, showed her experience in the final to lead throughout the opening two rounds.

The European 10m Synchro bronze medallist picked herself up from a dropped third round dive to score 67.20 on her final effort and secure gold with a total of 386.20.

Germany's Keiu Duong took silver with 385.90 while Russia's Ekaterina Petukhova claimed bronze on 378.90.

Sylvester's British teammate Georgia Ward also impressed, qualifying in first for the Platform final after an impressive prelim.

Like Sylvester, the Crystal Palace diver missed her third dive in the final to slip out of medal contention but she raised a few eyebrows with her international debut performance.

In the only other competition of the day, Ross Haslam (City of Sheffield) finished tenth in the 1m Springboard with a total score of 326.95.

Edinburgh's James Heatly was 18th in the prelims on 286.35.
