Jack Haslam captures national 3m Springboard title in Plymouth

Jack Haslam pounced late to claim his second individual national title with 3m Springboard gold at the 2017 British National Cup in Plymouth.

The City of Sheffield diver added to his 1m victory at the 2015 British Championships with a dramatic gold at Plymouth Life Centre.

He was lying third with one round of dives to go, trailing Edinburgh Diving’s James Heatly and Haslam’s younger brother Ross.

But 21-year old Haslam was the best of the trio in the final round, setting a score of 420.55 to beat with his final dive worth 73.10.

Both Heatly and Ross Haslam dropped their final efforts for 57.80 points, ultimately finishing second and third on 419.35 and 414.05 respectively.

“I’m really happy,” said Haslam, who finished seventh in the 3m event 12 months ago.

“It’s a PB performance for me with a score of 420 so I’m really pleased with that.

“Obviously it’s nice to have my younger brother on the podium with me as well so I’m absolutely ecstatic.

“I had three weeks off over Christmas with a bad neck but the last three weeks have been really good training. So I wanted to show what I can do here and thankfully I have done.”
