Dean Calfacacos and Thomas Ciprick, of the Pointe-Claire Dive Club, were both double medalists at the Pan Am Junior Championships in diving, in Santiago, Chile, at the end of August.
Dean was selected to attend this competition, due to his astounding performance, at the Canadian Junior Development Nationals, which were held in July, in Regina, (Gold on 1 metre, Silver on 3 metre and Gold on Tower.)
Dean won a Gold medal on the one-metre board, as well as a Bronze medal, on the three-metre board, in the boy’s 11 and under category. This was Dean’s first International competition.
Thomas Ciprik won two Silver medals at this same competition, in the boy’s 16-18-year-old category, on both the one metre and three metre boards.
Assistant Head-coach David Bedard was part of the coaching staff at this competition, in Chile.
