Best is yet to come says dive star Omer
SOUTHEND Diving’s Duran Omer claimed two medals at the British Gas Diving Championships in Plymouth but still believes his best is yet to come this season.
The 17-year-old finished second in the 1m springboard junior final and took third in the 3m event. “Overall I’m pleased with how it went and picking up the two medals but I do feel as though I have more to give and I will aim to show that in the forthcoming events,” said Omer.
“In the three metre final I actually hit both of my feet on the board which brought some tension and real difficulty. It tested me mentally but I stayed in the right mindset and finished with some good dives."
