City duo shine Down Under

Have your say

CITY of Sheffield Diving Club’s Ross Haslam and Megan Sylvester have produced fine performances in Adelaide, Australia during the Junior World Diving Championships.

As part of a record-breaking British team, Ross finished in fourth place in the platform event for 14/15 year olds. This was an exceptional result in Ross’s first world junior championships finishing just behind the medallists, two of whom came from China and one from the USA. Ross dived well, his highest score coming from a forward 2½ somersault with one twist dive. Megan Syvester also dived well, qualifying for the final of the 16-18 years platform but injured her shoulder during qualifying.
