Hi, I’m Ruby, I’m 17 years old and I have been diving for 9 years. I have recently been selected for my first Grand Prix in Bolzano, Italy representing Great Britain where I will be competing in the Women’s 10m Synchro event. I train 6 days a week at the City of Leeds Diving Club and I also dive for GBR. Alongside this I am in my last year of school and will be doing my A Level exams within the next month.
I was first selected to represent GBR in 2014 at the Junior European Championships and the Junior World Championships when I was 14. In addition to this I competed at the Junior European championships in 2016. One of my highlights from last year was getting Bronze at the British Championships in the Women’s 10m event. Earlier that year, I won my first international Gold medal at the Youth Diving Meet in Dresden, Germany where I previously got Bronze the year before. 2017 has been a great year for me so far as in April I won two gold medals at the Junior Elite Championships, making me the Junior National Champion on 10m. Shortly after this I went on to compete at the Youth Diving Meet in Dresden where I managed to continue my success from the year before winning Gold.
This is my last year as a junior diver, so gaining experience from the Grand Prix in Bolzano is important for me. In addition to this, in a few weeks time I will be competing at the Senior European Diving Championships in Ukraine alongside my synchro partner Phoebe Banks and also the Junior European Diving Championships in Norway. Over the years I have dedicated lots of time and effort into this sport, therefore I would really appreciate any support/donations to help me finance this competition in Bolzano. This opportunity will help me to become one step closer to achieving my ultimate goal of competing in the Olympics.
Thanks for the support!
