Alicia Blagg’s potential as a top British diver came to life in 2014 as she landed her first British 3m Springboard title and then went on to win a first Commonwealth title. Blagg has competed at every level of the sport including the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Some time off and a refocus on training consumed most of her 2017 season but she made a return to the international stage in early part of 2018, a call-up from Team England for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. She went on to win silver with Kat Torrance in the 3m Synchro on Australia's Gold Coast.

Blagg attended her second Olympics in 2016, she again competed in the synchro event from the 3m board and improved on her 2012 result to rank sixth. Following the Games in Rio Blagg made the move to train at the University of Randy Ableman.

A third outing at World Championships in 2015 saw Alicia compete in both the 3m and 3m Synchro events in Kazan, she ranked 26th and 10th respectively.

Her 2014 season featured domestic titles at both the British Championships and National Cup before she competed at her second Commonwealth Games, she teamed up with Rebecca Gallantree to win gold in the 3m Synchro event.

Blagg partnered Gallantree in 2013 to win two silvers in the FINA Diving World Series before claiming bronze at the European Championships then finishing sixth at the World Champs.

The pair made a significant improvement in 2012, setting a personal best 302.40 to qualify second for the European Championship final before ultimately finishing fifth, then placing seventh on Blagg’s Olympic debut at London 2012.

Blagg won her first Grand Prix medal in 2011, again combining with Gallantree for 3m Synchro silver in Fort Lauderdale, before making her World Championship debut in Shanghai.

She was handed her Commonwealth debut in 2010, finishing eighth in the 1m, 10th in the 3m and fourth competing with City of Leeds teammate Rebecca Gallantree in the 3m Synchro.

The Leeds diver was touted as a hot prospect after winning 1m Springboard gold as a 13-year old at the 2010 British Gas National Cup.
