Diving Canada – WINNIPEG – Olivia Chamandy and Félix Leathead, both from Montreal’s Club CAMO, and Mia Vallée of Pointe-Claire, Que. won their respective individual events on Friday at the 2016 Junior Elite National Championships in diving. Both were gold medallists as well in Thursday’s synchro events.

In the women’s 16-18 age group one-metre, took the gold with 455.45 points. Mara George of Winnipeg was second at 436.65 and Aimee Wilson of Calgary third at 429.00

‘’I’ve been having a bit of a hard time lately on one-metre so it was nice to get the win today,’’ said Chamandy, who swept gold on all three boards at last year’s junior elite nationals. ‘’I’m not really thinking about sweeping again this year. I just try to keep the focus on my own diving.’’

On men’s 16-18 three-metre, Leathead was first at 547.90.  Ryan Grover of Victoria was second at 534.40 and Peter Thach Mai of Montreal third at 534.60.

‘’I came pretty close to a personal best,’’ said Leathead. ‘’What I was really pleased with today was my consistency.’’

In the girls 14-15 three-metre, Vallée, who won the Thursday’s three-metre synchro with Chamandy, totalled 463.20 for top spot. Margo Erlam of Calgary followed at 445.75 and Erin Field of Pointe-Claire was third at 409.55.

‘’I was glad to put in a consistent performance,’’ said Vallée.  ‘’Usually on three-metre there seems to be always one dive I don’t do well. But the hard work in practice has paid off.’’

In the boys 14-15 one-metre, Bryden Hattie of Victoria was first at 408.95, Victor Povzner of Markham, Ont., second at 400.75 and Jamie Spilchak of Saskatoon third at 377.05.

The competition is also a team qualifier for the world junior championships this fall in Russia.

‘’I can’t believe I’ll be going to Russia,’’ said Hattie. ‘’That was my big goal and it’s going to be exciting how I stack up against the top divers in my age group.’’

Competition continues through to Sunday at the Pan Am Pool.
