Diving – CALGARY- Olivia Chamandy of Montreal and Ethan Pitman of Edmonton won heated battles on Sunday to conclude the 2017 Senior Winter Nationals Championships in diving.

Four divers were in contention until the finish for the women’s three-metre title. Chamandy collected her second gold this weekend with 290.50 points.  Elaena Dick of Halifax was second at 288.30 and Ashley McCool of Calgary third at 281.85. Mia Vallée of Beaconsfield, Que., was fourth at 281.10.

‘’I was pretty nervous for the final,’’ said Chamandy, 16, a double medallist last season at the world junior championships in Russia and the platform winner on Saturday. ‘’After I missed my third dive I was determined to do well the rest of the way and was rewarded for that. I’m happy I was able to keep it together. Really pleased overall with my weekend.’’

All three medallists on men’s 10-m tower, produced consistent performances  but Ethan Pitman had the toughest list and won the gold with 439.40 for his first career national senior title.  Alexandre Corriveau of Terrebonne, Que., followed at 423.10 and Laurent Gosselin-Paradis of Montreal third at 419.15.

“I knew it was going to be a really close competition,” said Pitman, 19, who now trains in Montreal. “Everyone dove well today. I didn’t have any misses or any amazing dives but it was really consistent. I tried not to watch the scoreboard but it’s so big you can’t miss it so I knew what I had to do.’’

Other winners this week were Éloise Bélanger of Montreal on women’s one-metre while Peter Thach Mai of Montreal prevailed in both men’s springboard events.



Important funding for these championships was received through grant programs from Alberta Sport Connection, City of Calgary Council Strategic Initiatives Fund, and Calgary Sport Tourism Authority.
