Rebecca Gallantree in training for the 2013 British Diving Championships

18th January 2012

Hello and Happy New Year! (Is it still acceptable to say that mid-way through January?!?)

So my winter training preparation phase is almost over and I'm about to enter another competition phase, wow that has come around quickly! The 2013 British Diving Championships are only a few weeks away now, taking place from the 8th-10th February at Plymouth Life Centre.

I will be competing in the 3m individual event and the 10m synchro, with my Leeds based partner Jenny Cowen. It will be the first time in a few years that I will not be competing in the 3m synchro, in which Alicia will be competing with her new partner Hannah Starling (also Leeds based).

I'm guessing its going to feel pretty strange watching those two compete together! It will be exciting as well though, as I'm sure they have a very bright future together in that event. As always, performances at the British Championships will map out how the rest of the season will look for me, with possibilities of going to World Series events in China and Dubai, among other events! So it's quite an exciting time, if a little stressful!

If anyone is Plymouth based, or close by, they should definitely come and support all of the British divers at this exciting competition.

Well, I had better sign off and get back to training and preparing for February! It's hard to believe that it's 2013 already!
