Diving Canada – WINNIPEG – Ontario divers Henry McKay of Ottawa and Elaena Dick of Toronto, each won a gold medal on Tuesday in diving action at the Canada Games.
On women’s three-metre, Dick overcame an 11th place in the preliminaries to win the title with 309.15 points. Ashley McCool of Alberta was second at 303.15 and Coral Strugnell of B.C., third at 299.10.
‘’I’m happy with the outcome,’’ said Dick, who won the national junior title last month. ‘’The preliminaries were a bit hard to get over. My coach really helped me prepare for the final and get back on track. I think I learned a lesson tonight about continuing to move forward.’’
In the men’s one-metre, McKay benefitted from a slightly harder list to win the gold with 362.60 points. Bryden Hattie of B.C., earned big scores on his last two dives but it wasn’t enough as he settled for silver at 361.85. Peter Thach Mai of Montreal, the leader after the prelims, was third at 357.60.
‘’One of the most consistent meets I’ve ever had,’’ said McKay. ‘’I was watching the competition and I saw Bryden before me rip his last dive so I knew I needed to do the same to win.’’
After two days of competition, Ontario leads the diving medal standings with two gold and two bronze. Quebec follows at 1-1-1, Alberta is third at 1-1-0 and B.C. has 0-2-1.
Diving competition continues through to Thursday.
