Reid Secures Place in Olympic Final

Grace Reid of Edinburgh Diving Club produced a confident set of dives in the semi-final of the 3m springboard to reach the final of her first Olympic Games.

20-year old Reid nailed her first two dives, with her 2nd round dive, a forward 3.5 somersaults, piked producing a score of 69.75, an improvement of almost ten points from the prelims.

She waivered a bit during rounds 3 and 4, but her final dive, a forward 2.5 somersaults with 1 twist, piked scored 63.00 enough to qualify 11th overall with a points total of 314.28.

Tomorrow’s final will start at 8pm UK Time and Reid will look to try and get close to her personal best of 328 points, which secured her the bronze medal at the European Championships in London back in May.
