Our Barnet Copthall divers have been competing all year in the Bill Johnson Championship. This is a competition between seven diving clubs from all over London and requires the clubs to field divers from every category from Novice to Senior. Championship points are accumulated in each round of the competition.
In 2016 we came a very close second, missing the top spot by only 2 points. This year we arrived at Waltham Forest on Sunday 26th November for the final leg of the 2017 championship also in second place. Barnet Copthall were 10 points behind Amersham Diving Club and winning seemed an impossible target.
That's when Barnet Copthall divers did something amazing! They won 8 gold, 6 silver and 3 bronze meals on the day to beat Amersham by a staggering 26 points to 12 - enough to give them victory in the overall championship table by a margin of 4 points.
Head Diving Coach, Justine Green, said she was thrilled with the result and that the divers deserved it for all their effort and hard work.
