MONTEAL’S D’AMOUR WINS SECOND GOLD AT CANADA-U.S. DIVING MEET

NEPEAN, Ont.- Martin d’Amour of Montreal earned a second gold medal Saturday placing first on boys 7.5-metre tower at the 2002 Canada-U.S., Junior Challenge diving competition.

D’Amour, 13, totalled 336.05 points for the victory in the boys 14-15 age group. He also won the one-metre event on Friday. Brian Lawler of the U.S., was second at 272.40 and his teammate Jonathan Creasy third at 253.40.

"Everything went well for me," said d’Amour, who hopes to compete at the Olympics one day. "I was most pleased with my 21/2 reverse dive because it was the first time I really scored well on it in competition."

Other Canadian winners Saturday were Riley McCormick of Victoria in the 12-13 age group three-metres and Sabrina Beaupre of St-Lambert, Que., in the under-11 one-metre.

In the highly-anticipated women’s 10-metre for the 16-18 age group, Sarah Bowling of the U.S., took the gold with 367.70, Emmanuelle Dupuis of Montreal was second at 356.25 and Michelle Demond of the U.S., third 341.00.

Dupuis blew her final dive, a back 21/2 in pike position and it possibly cost her the gold.

"I never miss that dive in competition," said Dupuis, 15, the one-metre winner Friday. "I saw light as I came down and I opened too early. I plan too get my revenge on three-metres."

The competition has been fierce between the two countries. In the medal standings heading into Sunday’s final events the U.S., has eight gold, eight silver and 11 bronze and Canada stands at 7-7-4.
