Canadian National Team Diver Celina Toth Named CSI Pacific Athlete of the Month Powered by 2XU
Canadian Sport Institute Pacific – VICTORIA, BC – Celina Toth, Canadian diver and a world champion, has been named CSI Pacific Athlete of the Month Powered by 2XU for March 2019.
The Athlete of the Month is Canadian Sport Institute Pacific (CSI Pacific)’s way of acknowledging a BC-located athlete who has displayed outstanding performances in their sport and deserves recognition. Athletes chosen monthly to be the face of Canadian Sport Institute Pacific receive a feature on our CSI Pacific’s website and a gift from 2XU.
Celina Toth began diving at the age of 12 after retiring from gymnastics. Her transition from one sport to the next occurred in only a handful of days – she quickly found herself at the pool five times a week.
A national team member for the last decade, Toth won her first international medal in 2015, when she finished 3rd in the 10m at the FINA Grand Prix in Madrid. Since then, the Ontario native contributed in qualifying a second Rio 2016 Olympic berth for the country when she finished 4th in the semifinal and wrote her ticket to the final. Celina was nominated for the Athlete of the Month powered by 2XU for March due to achieving her first ever international win in Germany last month.
Previous winners have included Phil Mack (Rugby Canada), Ian Ryder (Judo Canada) and Simon d’Artois (Freestyle Canada).
