From behind the iron curtain……
Monday – Emily Martin and coach Jack Clewlow arrived at Heathrow airport in the morning reporting for GB duty along with the other 6 divers and two coaches to travel to Moscow for Junior Europeans. They arrived in Russia and say the hotel is lovely!
Tuedsday – After settling themselves into the (in Emilys words) “mini Athletes Village” they made their way to the pool where Emily trained her 1m dives. Emily says the pool is so nice! The GB team are passing time playing a bit of Giant Chess with the competitors from the other Countries (Emily has no idea how to play so we are guessing is learning as she plays.)
Wednesday – They returned to the pool for training and Emily trained her Platform dives. Then more chess and socialising
Thursday – They did some training and then went into Moscow for some sightseeing.
Friday – Competition starts, but Emily doesn’t compete until Saturday (1m) and Sunday (platform) – We will try and keep you updated with their progress but there doesn’t seem to be any live streaming or way to obtain results
