Halifax’s Tom Gillis was one of Nova Scotia’s top performers at the Speedo Canadian junior diving championships last weekend in Winnipeg.

Gillis, who trains out of the Cygnus Diving Club, earned a sixth-place finish among 20 competitors in the men’s Group C (ages 12 and 13) three-metre springboard event.

He also placed ninth among 23 divers in the one-metre event.

It was Gillis’s top finish at a national event.
