Diving Plongeon Canada – KAZAN, Russia – Canada continued to be a consistent presence in finals at the FINA World Junior Diving Championships on Thursday as Elaena Dick of Edmonton and Molly Carlson of Thunder Bay, Ont., were seventh and eighth on women’s three-metre.

In the 16-18 age group event, Huiling Chen of China took the gold medal with 445.00 points, Melany Hernandez of Mexico was second at 441.75 and Katherine Torrance of Britain was third at 433.65.

Dick, competing at her first world juniors took seventh at 413.00 and Carlson, 14th in the same event at the last world juniors in 2014, followed at 406.65.

‘’I felt I was consistent but still could have done better, especially in the finals,’’ said Dick. ‘’Still there’s definitely some good that came out of it. No matter how I was diving I kept pushing as hard as I could through the competition.’’

Dick was third after the preliminaries which had 34 entries making for long gaps between dives.

‘’I think I felt much more comfortable today than in my first event which was also super long,’’ said the 17-year-old. ‘’I found it easier to manage between my dives especially in the prelims. It is so long between dives that you need to listen to music or read a book so you’re not overthinking and not wasting mental energy.’’

On men’s 14-15 one-metre, Dmitry Belov of Russia was the winner with Luis Felipe Uribe Bermudez of Colombia second and Nikita Grigorovich of Russia third.

Bryden Hattie of Victoria missed a berth in the final by one spot and two points placing 13th in the preliminaries. Victor Povzner of Maple, Ont., was 16th.

Competition continues through to Sunday.
