Eden Cheng Wins European Championships

Eden Cheng wins European Junior Diving Championships

Eden Cheng (GSF supported athlete) won Great Britain’s first gold of the European Junior Diving Championships 2017 with victory in the Group B Platform.

The Crystal Palace diver made her European Junior debut at the event in Bergen, Norway.

But the 14-year old looked a star in the making as she swept to gold, finishing 20 points clear of the field on 361.30.

The English diver’s victory continues a remarkable rise to the top for Eden, who was competing at the ASA National Age Group Championships 12 months ago.

After two golds in Sheffield, Eden competed at her first British Junior Elite Championships this season, winning the Group B Platform crown.

And she has taken the step up to her maiden European Junior Champs in her stride, claiming the title that Plymouth’s Victoria Vincent won last yearand Rio 2016 Olympian Lois Toulson lifted in 2014.

Eden’s Crystal Palace teammate Louise Bradley (also a GSF supported athlete) also made the Group B Platform final in Norway.

Having won 1m Springboard bronze earlier in the competition, Louise scored 288.00 to finish 11th.

The GLL Sport Foundation supports many divers, and we’re pleased to see them excelling at such a fast rate! We look forward to supporting them for years to come.
