Sheffield’s Millie Haffety produced an excellent sequence of dives to secure the bronze medal in the three metre springboard event at the European Diving Championships in Bergamo, Italy.

In the same competition, Sarah Leach narrowly missed out on a medal in fourth

In her first European Junior Championships, Millie also competed in the 3 metre springboard synchro competition where she and Lois Toulson from Leeds achieved high synchronicity scores in coming fifth.

Ross Haslam recovered brilliantly from a ‘failed dive’ in the preliminary event of the platform competition to finish in 4th.

The failed dive came when his legs touched the board on a back dive and he over-rotated into a somersault.

Head Coach Tom Owens said “our results from the European Junior Championships show that Sheffield’s divers are highly competitive with the best divers on the continent.”
