Kehagias claims shock diving medal

VIS diver Joshua Kehagias picked up a surprise silver medal and a personal best result at the Gold Coast Diving Grand Prix over the weekend.

The VIS scholarship holder produced the performance of his short career to shock even himself and win the silver medal in the men’s 3-metre springboard, stealing the spotlight from Beijing gold medallist, Matthew Mitcham.

The 18 year old started strongly, and held his nerve while other divers made mistakes; with only experienced Chinese diver Bowen Huang finishing ahead of the Australian.
