Spendolini-Sirieix Claims British Championship, Earns Spot in Paris.

Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix clinched victory in the women's 10m platform final at the British Diving Championships, earning her spot in the upcoming Olympics in Paris this summer.

The 19-year-old diving sensation Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix secured her ticket to the Paris Olympics with a stellar performance at the British Diving Championships. She dominated the individual women’s 10m platform final, scoring an impressive 363.7 points. 

Lois Toulson took second place with 335.90 points, followed by Eden Cheng in third with 327.75 points.

"I'm elated," Spendolini-Sirieix exclaimed after her win. "I just kept pushing through that competition. We'll see what happens in Paris, but I really just want to enjoy it."

The competition held at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre serves as a crucial selection event for the individual 3m springboard and 10m platform Olympic diving disciplines, as well as the European Championship diving team.

Two spots are up for grabs for Paris in each of the individual events, provided a diver wins the event and achieves a pre-set points threshold in both the preliminaries and final. Spendolini-Sirieix met these criteria with her outstanding performance.

In the men's division, Jack Laugher also shined, claiming victory in the men's 3m springboard. Despite finishing fourth in the preliminary competition, he surged ahead in the final with an impressive score of 507.20 points. 

Jordan Houlden secured second place with 476.20 points, while Dan Goodfellow took third with 471.60 points.

Spendolini-Sirieix and Laugher have already secured spots in Team GB's diving squad for the Olympics as they were chosen as synchronized pairings. Their synchronized performances have been outstanding, earning them the trust and recognition to represent their country on the biggest stage in diving.
