Dixon and Williams land gold and silver to close 2017 European Juniors

Matthew Dixon and Noah Williams closed the European Junior Diving Championships in style with gold and silver on the final day in Bergen, Norway.

The English pair were in a class of their own in the Group A Platform final, finishing more than 65 points clear of the field.

Plymouth Diving’s Dixon ultimately won the battle between the Brits, defending his title from 12 months ago with gold on 568.75.

The 17-year old added more than 75 points to his tally from 2016 as he underlined his potential for next year’s Commonwealth season, where he will aim to compete at his second Games.

Williams was just as impressive as he improved by 70 points on his score to win bronze at last year’s European Juniors.

The 17-year old Dive London diver finished on 546.45 for his silver, with Russia’s Emil Ibragimov back on 477.25 for bronze.

Williams has shown steady improvement this year, winning the senior National Cup title in February before claiming bronze behind European champion Matty Lee and Dixon at the British Championships.

The result brought Dixon and Williams their second medal of the Championships, having combined for 10m Synchro silver to compliment their bronze in the same event from last month’s senior European Championships.

Scarlett Mew Jensen and Millie Haffety were also in action on the final day in Norway, both reaching the Group A 3m Springboard final.

Dive London’s Mew Jensen ultimately finished eighth on 390.05 while Sheffield Diving’s Haffety was 10th on 375.75.
