GERRARD CLAIMS FIRST TITLE OF THE COMPETITION





The women's event saw promising performances from all eight competitors in the pre-lims, with Tandi Gerrard (City of Leeds) taking an early lead and finishing in the top spot with a score of 242.50.

Going in to the final, the 29-year-old was hopeful of a medal winning performance. She completed the final in front of club-mate Amy Dawson. The Commonwealth medallist, missed a couple of dives but still managed to win the final with a score of 224.70.

"I could have hit the dives harder," she said. "I was slightly disappointed with a couple of them and I know I could have got higher scores but I am very happy to have won the event."

Dawson finished in second place with a score of 196.00, and in bronze medal position was Southend-on-Sea Diving's Lottie Thompson with 183.65 points.

"I am really pleased and excited by getting the silver medal," said Dawson. "I was quite disappointed with the pre-lims, but worked harder for the final. I knew that I had to push myself and I was pleased with how well I did."

The final event of the day was the women's 10m Platform event which saw City of Leeds Suzanne Collins and Aimee Walker take the British title with a score of 249.51. The pair have only been diving for the past two months.

"We are quite pleased with the result," Collins said. "We had some good dives, some of our dives were a little bit out but that can be worked on and we think that we can make a lot of progress in the future. It is a new pairing but it felt good today."
