Diving Canada – VICTORIA – Tatiana Conn of Calgary earned her second gold medal on Saturday with a Canadian record in the girls 12-13 age group three-metre at the 2017 Junior Development Nationals diving competition.
Conn never scored below 7.0 on her five optional dives to win with 394.10 points. That was an age group national record which previously belonged to Erin Field of Pointe-Claire. Que., since 2015.
‘’I was actually surprised to break the record,’’ said Conn, the one-metre winner on Friday. ‘’My reverse two and half was my key dive today. I had a lot better take-off and entry than in practice.’’
Kathryn Grant of Ottawa took the silver with 366.80 and Kelsey Clairmont of Regina was third at 356.25.
In the boys 12-13 one-metre, Benjamin Tessier and Édouard Juteau from the club Envol in Blainville, Que., were 1-2 with 349.05 and 343.75 points. Carson Paul of Victoria, the three-metre winner Friday, was third at 322.60.
‘’It’s great to know I have the talent to finish in first place,’’ said Tessier. ‘’I was pretty stressed out throughout the competition but I knew I was able to get at least 7.5’s on my dives. I was confident.’’
Loic Tremblay of Quebec City also earned a second gold with a win in the boys 11 and under platform with 242.35. Nigel Chambers of London, Ont., was second at 238.60 and Paul Yang of Edmonton third at 209.85.
In the girls 11 and under platform, Jordane Legault of Blainville took the title with 251.05 followed by Catherine Boyer of Ottawa second at 244.35 and Renee Batalla of Edmonton third at 237.15.
‘’I still can’t believe I won,’’ said Legault. ‘’It’s a proud moment for me to come back from a disappointing performance yesterday.’’
A total of 85 athletes from 22 clubs are at the three-day competition. These championships also serve as trials for the upcoming Pan American Junior Diving Championships, scheduled for Victoria September 28 to October 1st, 2017.
Competition ends Sunday at Saanich Commonwealth Place.
