Two Boardworks divers finished the 2015 season with national championship titles after Aidan Faminoff and Ryan Grover won gold at the Speedo Junior Elite National Diving Championships in July, in Edmonton. This is the fourth national championship title won by Boardworks divers last season after Carson Paul won gold in the Boys 11 and under 3-metre event at the Speedo Junior Development Nationals in Quebec City earlier in July, 2015 and Celina Toth won her first national championship title in her home pool at the Summer Senior National Championships at the beginning of June in Victoria.
Faminoff, 17, a former junior national champion, easily won the Boys 16-18 platform event after nailing his final dive, an inward 3 1/2 somersaults, scoring 7.5’s and 8’s from the judges. Faminoff finished with a score of 519.50 earning him a berth on Canada’s National team competing at the Pan Am Junior Championships in Matanzas, Cuba in October 2014.
Boardworks Ryan Grover, also earned a spot to Cuba after winning the Boys 16-18 1-metre event. Grover, 17, who won a surprise silver medal at the Summer Senior National Championships in May, convincingly won gold in Edmonton finishing 34 points ahead of silver medallist Peter Thach Mai of Montreal.
