Diving – WINNIPEG – Elaena Dick of Toronto posted big scores on her first and last dives and won her third gold medal on Thursday at the Canada Games with a victory on women’s 10-m tower.
Dick completed a golden sweep of the three individual events with 336.40 points. Sarah Jodoin Di Maria of Quebec was second at 323.60 and Alyssa Clairmont gave Saskatchewan its first of two diving medals placing third at 295.40.
‘’It’s nice to have the stress of competition over and finally relax,’’ said Dick, who also won a bronze on three-metre synchro on Monday to kick-off the diving competition. ‘’The Games were a great experience and the environment was amazing.’’
The 18-year-old Dick scored mostly 9.0’s on her opening reverse dive and earned her biggest total score (78.40) on her twisting dive in the fifth and final round. She surpassed 70 points on three dives. Clairmont was the only other dive to hit 70.
Dick will compete for Canada later this month at the World University Games.
Quebec divers took gold and silver on men’s 10-m. Thomas Ciprik was first at 429.75, Laurent Gosselin-Paradis second at 389.25 and Rylan Wiens of Saskatchewan followed for bronze at 385.60.
‘’I wasn’t expecting a medal,’’ said Ciprik. ‘’My degree of difficulty on my first two dives puts me at a disadvantage but still they gave me confidence and I just got better and better.’’
Ontario ends the diving competition with four gold, a silver and a bronze; Quebec has 3-3-1; Alberta 1-1-1; B.C. 0-4-2 and Saskatchewan 0-0-2.
