Congratulations...

They've done it... Diving TEAM SCOTLAND Gold Coast 2018!

Team Scotland CWG 2018Many, many congratulations to James Heatly whose exceptional performance won him BRONZE in the 1m springboard event at the Commonwealth Games. This was a very emotional moment for James as he accepted the medal and dedicated it to his late grandfather, Sir Peter Heatly, who won the last Scottish medal at the Commonwealth Games 60 years ago. Previous member of the Club Grace Reid went on to win a GOLD medal and achieved a personal best score in her 1m springboard event. Her performance was utterly breathtaking. Grace's name will also go down in history as being the first ever women in Scottish diving to win a medal at a Commonwealth Games! What a night it was and to hear the Flower of Scotland being sung at the Optus Aquatic Centre was incredible.  Gemma McArthur had a brilliant competition in her 10m Platform event making it through to the final and performing some exceptional dives during a very windy and gusty evening.  Lucas Thomson and James performed well in their 10m platform synchro final coming 5th in this event. Lucas had a succesful competition in the 1m springboard event coming 12th in the final and then went on to compete in the 10m individual platform and performed exceptionally well exceeding all expectations coming 5th overall in the final.  Well done to you all,
