Plymouth Diving’s Dixon and Vincent confirmed in GB squad for World Junior Champs

PLYMOUTH Diving’s Matthew Dixon and Victoria Vincent will compete at the World Junior Championships in Kiev later this month.

It will be Dixon’s second global competition of the summer, having competed at the FINA World Cup in China last month where he finished an impressive ninth in the individual platform event and sixth in the synchro competition with Noah Williams. 

Williams, like 18-year-old Dixon, will also compete at the World Junior Championships in Ukraine before the pair, who won a Commonwealth Games silver medal together in April, link back up with the Great Britain senior team for the European Championships in Edinburgh.

The World Junior Championships take place between July 23 and July 29, with the European Championships starting on August 6.

Meanwhile, 17-year-old Vincent will head to Kiev on the back of winning two medals at the European Junior Championships in Finland at the end of last month.

Great Britain are sending a team of 14 out to the Ukraine.

The full team is: Phoebe Banks (City of Leeds), Oliver Crompton (City of Leeds), Ben Cutmore (Dive London), Matthew Dixon (Plymouth), Anthony Harding (City of Leeds), Yasmin Harper (City of Sheffield), Tyler Humphreys (Crystal Palace), Emily Martin (Southampton Diving Academy), Scarlett Mew Jensen (Dive London), Maria Papworth (Dive London), Lucas Thomson (Edinburgh), Victoria Vincent (Plymouth), Noah Williams (Dive London), Josie Zillig (Crystal Palace).
