Jack also dived well finishing the final in 8th place.

His best dive was a forward 3½ somersault achieving 71 points.

In windy conditions for the 1 metre springboard event, Ross came 7th and Jack 10th.

Jack and Ross also combined forces to compete in the 3 metre synchro event where they came 5th with a near personal best score.

Excellent execution and synchronisation saw them achieve 77 points with their inward 2½ somersault dive.

Accompanying the brothers to Australia, coach Tom Owens said: “Jack and Ross have represented Sheffield and England brilliantly both in the pool and as ambassadors for their sport.”
