Theo Smith - Diving achievements.
Over the school holidays I spent many days at the pool training for the Auckland Autumn Diving Champs. Myself and some of the other Diving Otakou members went up on the last weekend of the school holidays. We competed in three events over three days. Getting up at 5.30am to be at the pool for training at 7am then competing in one event each day. My first event was the 3mtr spring board I came 3rd in this event. I then competed in the 1mtr springboard, I placed 4th in this event. The final event was the 5mtr platform I placed 1st in this event.
Many of the divers attending were trialling for the Pacific Schools Games being held in Adelaide in December.
All of the divers trialling for this event from Diving Otakou have been selected to represent New Zealand.
This month I will be going to Auckland to compete at the Skills National event which I am really looking forward to.
