Plymouth College divers show-cased their talents in the Armada Cup by bringing home six medals.  Held at Plymouth's Life Centre and hosted by Plymouth Diving, the event is the country's largest age group diving competition.

Clubs from all over the UK competed in individual and synchronised rounds.  Victoria Vincent (Pictured), 11, won gold in the 1m and 3m and silver in the platform, Danny Bates, 17, won gold in the platform while Alex Kostov, 14, and Harry Mason, 13, took bronze in the 3m synchro.

Alex went on to come 4th in the 3m with Danny taking 5th and 6th place in the 1m and 3m respectively.  Natasha MacManus, 15, also secured a top ten place coming 4th in the platform.

All five pupils train with Plymouth Diving, which works in partnership with the school to ensure the young athletes receive the care and support needed to succeed in both their diving and their academic studies.
