Ellen also did extremely well in a very tough Girls B Group. Lucas and Ben Cutmore (Dive London) went on to win GOLD in the Boys Platform Synchro and Lucas went on to win GOLD in a closely fought and very exciting 10m Platform individual Boys A event. An absolutely fantastic weekend of diving with so much talent coming through EDC!  Many thanks to chaperones, Fiona Sharman, Fiona Thomas and Lee Duke and to our exceptional coaches Jen and Becky!
