G Star – Report

May 2, 2011 | News

DSC_0080This year we had a small team of 11 divers competing in the G-Star event held annually in Leeds and considered tobe the toughest of the domestic club invite competitions, which it certainly proved to be this year. There were 15 British clubs competing as well as divers from Ireland, Sweden, Canada and South Africa.

Although our team was small it was extremely successful. We won five gold medals, two of which were taken by Katharine Torrance in the Girls Group C (12 & 13yrs) 1m & 3m, she also came away with a silver in the platform event. Rhea Gayle won two gold medals in the  Girls Group A (16 – 18yrs) 1m & 3m events, setting two new records for the highest scores. Fourteen year old Jessica Mitchell won the fifth gold in the Girls Group B (14 & 15yrs) 1m event, while team mates Emily Moses took the silver and Amber Sheppard the bronze, a 1,2,3 for Crystal Palace! Emily Moses gained another silver in the 3m competition with another Crystal Palace diver, Holly Lewis taking the bronze.

DSC_0061Well done for an excellent performance by the whole team.
