Owen Harrison proves he is one of the best young divers in the country

OWEN Harrison stole the show when he became the national three metre springboard championship in his age-group in Sheffield last weekend.

The 11-year-old from Huntingdon, who is coached by Cambridge Diving Team’s Marc Holdsworth, was 27 points clear of his nearest rival in the Boys’ D age-group competition for 10 and 11 year olds.

And the young diver almost made it a double gold but had to settle for the silver medal on the five metre platform when he was beaten into second by just 0.45 of a point.

Harrison, who is also a promising member of Huntingdon Gym, also came in the top ten in the one metre springboard event.
