Deidre Freeman's Diving Road to Rio 2016
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!
