Lucy Hawkins and Tom Daley!

Lucy Hawkins makes a big splash in the elite world of diving!

March 15, 2016


I am currently diving for Southampton Diving Academy at a Junior elite and Senior elite national level. Last month I competed at my first senior event which was the British National Cup, alongside Olympic divers such as Tonia Couch, Sarah Barrow and Thomas Daley. I only competed on the 1m springboard and 10m platform where I finished 12th on 1m in the country and 17th on platform. It was a great experience to dive with these successful people but at the same time it was scary having to dive after an Olympian!

At the end of March I have the Junior Elite National Championships in Plymouth, I hope to dive consistently in all my competitions which will include the 1m and 3m springboard, the platform and the 3m synchronised diving with my partner Tanya Watson. My aims for this year and next year is to make a final in these competitions, giving me the chance of being selected for the Junior Great British Diving team.
