Three more bronzes for British divers in DresdenApril 21, 2017
England’s top junior divers continued to impress with three medals on day two of the Dresden Youth International Meet 2017.
Anthony Harding and Cameron Gammage both won individual springboard bronzes while Scarlett Mew Jensen and Maria Papworth combined for 3m Synchro bronze.
The results took the British Diving medal tally up to five after Ruby Bower and Lucy Martin’s gold and silver in the Group A Platform on the opening night.
City of Leeds diver Harding came into the meet off the back of a hat-trick of springboard titles at the British Elite Junior Championships earlier in April.
And while he couldn’t find his best form in the 3m Springboard on the opening day, finishing 10th in the final, the 16-year old bounced back in style in the 1m.
Having finished second in the prelims, Harding scored 281.95 for his five dives in the final, finishing on 480.00.
Harding’s Leeds teammate William Hallam backed up his eighth in the 3m with another top 10 placing, scoring 451.75 to finish seventh.
Gammage adds international bronze to domestic medals
Southampton diver Cameron Gammage was also a triple medallist at the Junior Elites, winning bronze in the Group B 1m and 3m as well as the 3m Synchro.
And the 15-year old was good value for another bronze on the international stage, scoring 213.70 for his four optionals in the final to finish with 409.75.

Scarlett Mew Jensen and Maria Papworth scored 243.48 to secure the third medal of the day for the British team.
The Dive London pair have been on a roll in recent months, picking up golds at the 7 Nations Meet in Bourg-en-Bresse as well as the British Elite Junior title in Plymouth.
