Ones to watch - Grace Reid

WHEN SHE’S NOT DANCING TO BEYONCÉ, GRACE IS TRAINING HARD FOR HER OLYMPIC MEDAL QUEST

The 25-year-old diver from Edinburgh describes the first dive she ever took aged four as “feeling like flying”. Since then, Grace has gone from strength to strength, winning
gold in both the Commonwealth Games and European Championships in 2018.

Grace made history as she became the first woman ever to win a Commonwealth diving gold for Scotland in the Gold Coast and also claimed five Diving World Series medals.

This came after taking home the silver at the 2017 World Championships in the 3m mixed synchro partnered with Tom Daley, who she credits as ‘putting diving on the map’

But the 23-year-old likes to keep it grounded, often sharing videos of diving fails and belly flops on Instagram - look them up, they’re very funny.

Last year, Grace recently placed her Applied Sports Science studies on hold and moved from Edinburgh to London to train in the Olympic pool in a bid to improve.
