and took the next two places as well. Tia McGarry was the gold medallist closely
followed by silver medallist Sarah Leach and Charlotte Giblin with the bronze.
Matilda Rhys-Kristensen was fourth and Miriam Hide fifth. Also in this competition
came promising performances from Molly Bulmer, Olivia Johnson, Harriet Hunter,
Holly Cavell, Lauren Mansell, Heidi Johnson and TaylorMia Murphy.
Gold was also the colour for Holly Colvill in the 8/9 years event. Tillie Wilson
came fifth, Ashleigh Smallwood was sixth with Scarlett Miskin and Megan Jones
also performing well.
Creditable results were achieved by Paige Winspear and Alice Nowill in the girls
14 years and over event and by Ethan Chan in the boys 10/11 years competition.
Sheffield City Council’s Diving Development Officer Nikki Smith said; ‘Nick and
Monique have dived superbly in Delhi and it is a great inspiration to the up and
coming divers to see their heroes performing so well.’
