Fifteen-year-old Millie Haffety is back at Silverdale School after representing Great Britain in the Junior World Diving Championships in Russia.

She qualified for two finals, eventually finishing 10th and 11th. “The whole experience was nerve-wrecking, but exciting too and I had an amazing time.”

Now Millie is combining 19 hours a week of diving, weight training and acrobatics with her studies with the target of the Junior European Games in Azerbaijan next year. “But the Tokyo 2020 Olympics are my ultimate aim where I hope to compete as a senior athlete.”
