Plymouth divers look for British titles in their own pool

Matthew Dixon

PLMOUTH Diving will be well represented when the British Elite Junior Championships gets underway at the Life Centre on Wednesday.

Last year’s individual medallists Matthew Dixon, Shanice Lobb and Cody Powell-Tuckett will all be competing again at the 2016 championships.

They are joined by fit-again Victoria Vincent, who won two gold medals earlier this month at the Seven Nations event in Edinburgh, Owen Weymouth, Alex Kostov, Aidan Heslop, Ben Armitage, Kayleigh Sinclair, Blaise Fice, Madeleine Coquoz and Evangeline Piper.

Weymouth and Kostov will be first up in the boys’ 14-18 year-olds three-metre synchro final on Wednesday.

Weymouth will also take part in the one-metre boys’ A event, while Kostov will be among the one-metre and three-metre competitors in the same age group.

Commonwealth Games finalist Dixon will also be in that age category, having won the boys’ B platform title last year. As well as the platform event, which takes place on Friday, Dixon will also compete in the three-metre competition on Saturday.

Heslop will battle for honours in the boys’ B one, three-metre and platform events, while Armitage is entered for the boys’ C three-metre and platform.

In the oldest girls’ age group, Lobb will be looking for success in the platform competition, while Sinclair, Fice and Coquoz will be in springboard action.

Vincent, another Commonwealth Games finalist, will be going for a hat-trick of medals in the girls’ B one, three-metre and platform events. She will be joined in the platform competition by Powell-Tuckett, who won bronze last year.

Piper is also entered for all three individual events in the girls’ C section.
