Gold & Silver Wins for Grace

Published on 4 December 2009

GalleonMany congratulations to Grace Reid (S2) who came away from the Canadian and Montreal Open – an international diving competition – with gold and silver medals.

She won gold in the Women's Group C 3 metre springboard competition, beating 28 other competitors from around the world, including USA, Canada, Mexico, GB, Germany, Italy, and South America. Following that up with a second place in the 1 metre competition

Grace is a highly committed athlete and has been competing as part of the City of Leeds Diving Club: training with them every third weekend in Leeds. In the team are the current GB Senior Male Springboard Champion, the GB Synchro Platform Champion, and an Olympian. Grace has been selected for the GB Development Pathway for springboard, so this result will mean so much to her in relation to GB monitoring.
