Just finished up USA senior nationals in my home pool in Iowa City, IA. I ended up with 3 medals in all 3 of my events placing 1st in 3-meter individual, 1st in 3-meter synchro, and 2nd in 1-meter. I was also awarded the female high point scorer of the meet! It was a really successful competition and I'm so grateful that I could end my summer on a high note in my home pool! I dove really well and I'm excited for my next training cycle with my coach, Todd Waikel. I still have a lot to learn (including a new dive) and a lot of skill refining ahead of me but I can't wait to get back into the pool. Thank you so much for the support and helping me along the way thus far!

Recently returned from the World Championships in Barcelona, Spain! It was the most amazing experience and I could not have asked for a better group of people to share it with! I acquired so many friendships that will last a lifetime! I'm also so grateful that my coach, Todd Waikel, was able to go with me to keep inspiring me. My entire 3-week stay in both Palma de Mallorca and Barcelona was the most positive, exciting, memorable adventure and I will remember it for the rest of my life!

I began my competition on 1-meter placing 5th in the preliminary. I felt like I could improve a few things for finals. During finals I performed well but missed one of my dives. I finished 11th which isn't so bad on a global level! I moved on to 3-meter and I finished 22nd, missing the final by 6 points. Unfortunately, I missed a dive that I normally never miss even in practice. I have gained so much from this experience and I'm looking forward to more international competitions in the future where I can have the opportunity to perform even better!

My next opportunity to compete is in my home pool in Iowa City at USA summer diving nationals this coming week! I'm excited to have just come back from this Worlds with renewed inspiration and grit! Wish me luck at nationals!

Thank you everyone for your constant support!

Deidre :)
