MIRANDA WINS FIRST CAREER NATIONAL DIVING TITLE

THUNDER BAY Ont.--Arturo Miranda of Edmonton set a personal best on the men's three-metre springboard Sunday to win his first Canadian title at the summer nationals diving competition.

Miranda, 29, compiled 654.03 points to edge defending champion and Olympic teammate Jeff Liberty of Calgary second at 635.82. Chris Monson of Edmonton was third at 555.96.

"It feels great especially after being second or third the last two years," said Miranda. "This is the first time I've had a smile on the podium. The big difference is simply I've kept working hard and had my concentration the entire competition. I can't wait for the Olympics."


His best dive was a front 3 1/2 in pike position which scored 8.5 and 9.0's from the judges. Miranda is a former Cuban national champion who moved to Canada in 1995 and entered his first international competition for his new homeland only this season.

On women's 10-metre tower, Anne Montminy of Pointe-Claire, Que., won her eighth senior crown with 553.58 points. Her Olympic teammate Emilie Heymans of Montreal led entering the final round but settled for second at 546.21. Caroline Lauzon of Montreal was third at 483.12.

"I had a bit of a rough start but overall it was solid," said Montminy, ranked second in the world. "I was particularly pleased with my compulsory dives."

Several Olympic team members will compete at a Grand Prix meet in Sicily in a couple of weeks.
