Four young members of Crystal Palace Diving Club returned home with gold medals from the London region skills competition at Waltham Forest.

The contest features clubs from across the capital and is a qualification event for May’s national skills competition in Sheffield.

Youngsters aged from nine to 16+ took part in eight competitions, completing four dives from each poolside, one metre and three springboards.

As well as the quartet of golds, Crystal Palace placed second overall in the team trophy event just one point off top spot and also bagged two silvers and three bronzes.

Results: Gold - Evie Smith, Callie Eaglestone, Noah Payne, Georgia Howeld; Silver - Callum King, Jaida Umo; Bronze - Mabel Smith, Jack Schaafsma, Annabel Triggs.
