Silva & Winn To Compete At Spanish Diving Nationals

June 24, 2010

Bruin divers Karina Silva and Laura Winn have traveled to Barcelona, Spain to compete at the Spanish National Championships this Saturday and Sunday. Silva hails from Madrid and both women will be competing for Club Real Canoe of Madrid.

The meet is being held at Piscina Montjuic in Barcelona, the site of the 1992 Olympic Games diving competition.

Silva and Winn will be competing on Saturday and Sunday as both will compete on 1M, 3M and Platform. This will mark the first time that Silva will dive springboard at her national championships. She will also compete in the 3M Synchronized event.

Should Silva score enough points, she would qualify for both the Madrid Grand Prix meet (held in Madrid at her home pool) July 9-11 and the European Championships being held in Budapest, Hungary August 10-15.
