St George’s pupil wins diving gold in Luton

St George’s School pupil Henry Biggs tumbled, twisted and flipped his way to platform gold at Luton Diving Club.

The club, where Biggs trains, held its 27th Luton Challenge, the longest running, annual, inter-club diving event, and drew a record attendance with 150 divers, including World Junior Championship and Commonwealth Games participants, from 17 national clubs.

Biggs won the 10m platform event at Inspire:Luton Sports Village, beating elite divers Matt Cott from Southampton Diving Academy and Hal Watts, of Albatross Diving Club in Reading.
