Ward and Torrance are springboard stars on day one in Leeds

27th March 2013

Crystal Palace divers Georgia Ward and Katherine Torrance secured 3m Synchro gold on day one of the British Gas Elite Junior Diving Championships.

The pair opened with a strong inward dive piked and continued to perform with consistency in their other dives as they took gold in the 14-18 girls Synchro event.

“The dives went really well. As I am a platform diver it is always hard coming down to springboard but I am really happy with how we did," said Ward.

“It is nice having the boards closer together in Leeds because it is easier to see each other dives in our vision.”

Shanice Lobb and Kayleigh Sinclair (Plymouth Diving) took the silver medal scoring 241.65. while City of Sheffield’s divers Millie Haffety and Sarah Leach finished just shy of Lobb and Sinclair (238.26).

Phoebe Banks and Amy Read (City of Leeds) took the podium position in the 9-13 girls 3m Synchro scoring 205.32. Emily Bearpark (City of Leeds) and Holly Waxman (City of Bradford Esprit) took silver with a score of 192.45.

Matthew Dixon (Plymouth) and Anthony Harding (City of Leeds) took home gold with a score of 257.25 in the boys 9-13 3m Synchro event.

City of Sheffield dominated the final event of the day in the boys 14-18 3m Synchro. Jack Haslam and Freddie Woodward took home the gold medal (278.10) and Ross Haslam and Jordan Houlden dived into bronze medal position scoring 248.04. Ashley Hendrick and Danny Bates (Plymouth) won the silver medal with a score of 263.01.
