Andrea is no stranger to diving competitions

Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix has previously competed in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics last year, placing 7th for Great Britian.

However, there was no crowd during the Olympics due to coronavirus restrictions.

She also competed in the Budapest World Championships this year in Budapest, taking home a bronze medal.

In 2020, she claimed a silver and a bronze at the 2020 European Championships.

After the competition yesterday, she admitted that she wouldn’t be toasting her win with alcohol as she is not yet old enough to drink.

Instead, she expressed: “I’ve got a hot chocolate waiting for me!”

Congratulations to Andrea!
