13-year-old Ukrainian diver Oleksii Sereda wins European diving championship

Ukrainian diver Oleksii Sereda has astounded the world with an incredible win! He won the European Diving Championships 10m platform gold medal in his hometown of Kiev.

With his ensuing dive, he scored 91.20 with an armstand back 2 somersault 1.5 twist free, in a near-flawless dive. He then took out the championship by 14 points by scoring 81.60 with his final dive.

This teenage sensation has rocked the sporting world and left everyone stunned with his accomplishment in such a tender age. He is just 13 years old!! Can you believe it….???

By beating British over-achiever Tom Daley, Sereda becomes the youngest champion in the competition’s history. Daley won his first European title in 2018 at 13 years, 10 months. 

In a statement, Sereda said, “I’m happy that I could finish on the first place. My third dive was not that good but the others were satisfying.”
