Hi everyone, I traveled to Tucson, Arizona, in September to compete at the Jr. Pan American Championships for Team USA on all three events. I competed against Mexico, Colombia, Canada, Puerto Rico, Peru and Venezuela. I won the Platform Event and took home the only Gold Medal won by a man for Team USA! I am pretty happy that I dove well in my first Jr. Pan American Championship. It was a lot of fun and a great learning experience.
I met a lot of competitors from different countries who became my friends. We all stayed in the same hotel, so we got to hang out a lot. I am hoping to compete for Team USA at the Pan American Championships next!
In December, I will be trying to earn a spot on the Team for the Youth Olympic Games that will be held in China…that would be an awesome trip!
