13-Year-Old Ukrainian Diving Sensation Breaks Tom Daley's Record
At Student Beans we’re all about championing young people who are doing great things - and 13-year-old Oleksii Sereda definitely fits the bill.
The new European diving champ is three months younger than Tom Daley was when he previously won his first European title. It has been a truly awesome month for Sereda, who came in fourth at the World Championships just three weeks ago. Not bad for a breakthrough month!
Sereda said he was “a little nervous” (we would be too 😬) but very happy he won. With an unbelievably impressive start to his career, we’re excited to see what’s in store for this young diving star.
The minimum age requirement to complete the Olympics is 14, and thankfully Sereda’s birthday is December, which means he has definitely secured his place in Tokyo 2020.
The British team finished with an impressive six medals. Bring on the Olympics. 💪
