Plymouth diver Anderson wins three individual medals at GStar competition in Leeds

PLYMOUTH Diving’s Zach Anderson returned home with three individual medals from the GStar competition in Leeds at the weekend.

Anderson was the dominant diver in the boys’ D category at the top event, which not only attracted most of Britain’s best but also divers from America, Ireland and Dubai.

The Plymouth youngster won gold in the one-metre and three-metre disciplines and took silver in the five-metre final.

There was also a bronze medal for Plymothian Shanice Lobb in the girls’ A+ platform competition.

Lobb, now competing for London Aquatics Club, finished behind Leeds’ Phoebe Banks and Southampton’s Gemma McArthur in a strong women’s platform field.

Plymouth Diving’s Cody Powell-Tuckett finished 10th in that event, which attracted 24 competitors.

Olympic synchro medallist Dan Goodfellow did return to action following injury, but only in the three-metre springboard, where he won a silver medal, ahead of the likes of Ross Haslam, Freddie Woodward and James Heatly.

Plymouth took a young team to the West Yorkshire event.  As well as Anderson and Powell-Tuckett, Morgan Boyd, Ben Armitage, Thomas Davies, Josh Freeman, Ben Bluett,  Evie McCabe, Maria Marasescu and Frances Burdett were among their team to make the long trip to Leeds.
