Diving Canada – PLYMOUTH, England – Kate Miller of Ottawa and Benjamin Tessier of Blainville, Que., concluded the British Elite Junior Diving Championships Thursday with victories on all three boards.
In the girls 12-13 three-metre, Miller overcame a shaky first dive to earn top spot in comeback fashion with 325.90 points. Evie Smith of Britain was second at 324.40 and her compatriot Florence Summers third at 319.40.
Miller also won the one-metre and platform events this week. She averaged 5.0’s on her opening forward dive and was trailing Smith by 13 points heading into the third and last round. She finished with mainly 6.0’s and 7.0’s for her backward and inward dives while Smith muffed her last dive.
‘’I’m really pleased this was a huge competition for us,’’ said Miller. ‘’I’m proud with my results. I went over a bit on my forward dive but I was able to comeback strong and get some really good scores.’’
Jordane Legault of Blanville was sixth.
In the boys 12-13 three-metre, Tessier also won a close battle with 353.05. Zachery Anderson of Britain was second at 350.55 and Euan McCabe, also of Britain, was third at 333.45.
Tessier set the bar high with strong marks on his backward dive in the first round for 8.0’s and 7.0’s.
‘’This was a great learning experience,’’ said Tessier. ‘’I learned to manage my stress and I gained a lot of confidence. I had never competed before against such a large field before and I really didn’t know what to expect.’’
