Plymouth diving duo claim bronze medals in Australia
CITY divers Shanice Lobb and Francesca Del Celo both claimed bronze medals the Australian Youth Olympic Festival over the weekend.
Devonport High School for Girls pupil Lobb took third with the 10m platform synchro event with Greenford's Georgia Ward.
The 14-year-old admitted her medal-winning performance had taken even her by surprise.
Lobb said: "Winning the bronze medal in the synchro competition with Georgia was a great way to finish the competition. It was the first time we competed together so we are really happy to have won a medal at our first event."
