Goldcoast 2018

Sixty years after Scotland's last Commonwealth Games diving medal was won by Peter (later Sir) Heatly, his grandson James Heatly won an impressive bronze medal in the 1m springboard.

peaking about his grandfather Heatly finished by saying,

“My granddad is the reason I started diving. With his passing this is the only Commonwealth Games since 1948 that he’s not had any involvement in so to be able to bring another medal back to the family feels very special indeed.”

Heatly returns in the morning for the 3m springboard prelims while Gemma McArthur will make her Team Scotland debut in the 10m Platform.
