THE rising stature of Meldreth diving star Daniel Goodfellow took another leap at the weekend as he won his first medals at a senior national event.
At the age of just 16 the Cambridge Diving Team ace won bronze medals in both the 3m springboard and 10m platform events at The British Gas Diving Championships in Plymouth.
On the second day of the championships the teenager won bronze in the 3m springboard with a score of 374.75.
London 2012 Olympian Jack Laugher won the event on 448.10, with Oliver Dingley second on 385.10.
Goodfellow then scooped his second bronze in the 10m Platform on Sunday with 340.25.

There are suggestions that Goodfellow could be a future partner for Daley in the 10m synchro.
