University of St Mark & St John student, Rhea Gayle, Wins Silver at British Nationals

Released: 24.02.14

Speaking of the British Gas National Cup Rhea said,

'The British Gas National Cup is my first national event in two years, due to my back injury.

On the first day I competed in the Women's One Metre Springboard Event and I qualified for the final, winning third place. Going into the final I started with a steady set of dives but dropped one of them leaving me off the rostrum by only four points.

On the second day I competed in the Women's Three Meter Synchronised Springboard Event with my partner Francesca Del Celo. This was my first time competing in a three-metre springboard event in two years.

We put down a steady set of dives finishing the competition in second place and a personal best.’
