10 Aug 2018

Great Britain's Katherine Torrance secured herself a place in the Women's 1m European Championships final after a challenging prelims session.

Torrance dropped her opening dive, a Back 1 1/2 Somersaults Piked, but as she progressed through the remaining four rounds climbed back up the rankings and qualified for the final in 12th position with an overall score of 217.35.

The Leeds-based diver produced her best dive in the final round of the morning session, she scored 50.70 with her Forward 2 1/2 Somersaults Piked.

After she secured her position in the final Torrance said, "My diving wasn't quite where I wanted it to be this morning but the main thing is that I'm through to the final and get to dive again and demonstrate what I'm capable of.

"I'm going to get lunch, have a short rest, maybe a bit more training and then return for the final with a new mentality and just see what I can do."

Meanwhile, teammate Scarlett Mew Jensen who trains at Dive London, finished 15th overall and narrowly missed out on the final with a final score of 209.75.

The event was Mew Jensen's first outing at a senior Europeans and provided an invaluable learning experience.
