West Island divers compete close to home at the Montréal World Aquatics Cup.

The World Aquatics Diving World Cup is just wrapping up in Montréal, and provided West Island divers with a chance to showcase their talents in front of family and friends. Tickets were sold out across the board, and Beaconsfield's world-medalist, Mia Vallée, had her share of supporters who rallied at the Olympic Stadium.

Nathan graced the podium with a bronze medal in the men's 10-meter platform event, and 7th place in the synchronized 10-meter platform competition with partner Rylan Wiens. Zsombor-Murray is continuing to build upon his impressive career that includes competing at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and placing fifth alongside Vincent Riendeau, also from the Pointe-Claire Diving Club. The two came in second place at the 2019 Pan American Games.
