Yorkshire's Jack Laugher Wins Second Diving Gold

Jack Laugher

He's been victorious at the Commonwealth Games again, after winning a gold yesterday.

Today has been another great day for West Yorkshire diver Jack Laugher at the Commonwealth Games on Australia's Gold Coast.

He's won another gold medal, after coming first in the men's 3 metre springboard competition.

It follows yesterday's success in the 1 metre springboard when he won his first gold medal of the 2018 games.

And it doesn't end there, Jack is back in action tomorrow alongside diving partner Chris Mears in the men's synchronised 3 metre springboard, where there's a chance of further medal success.

Jack Laugher said: "I'm really proud, especially coming off of Glasgow - heart-breaking second place. I'm really proud to come out here, outdoors at night and really nail the competition, get a fan static score, to get my first ever 3m Commonwealth title - the one that probably means the most to me. Fantastic list, I'm really happy with how me and my coach have worked it."

"I have got a lot of experience in the 3m obviously, so I've pulled them out a lot, I've worked really hard with my strength and conditioning team, my diving coach, my physios - everything to get me in great shape for here. I'm still struggling, still not back to full fitness, so 520 outside and at nice, going through all the pressures of going for that Commonwealth title, I'm really proud of what I achieved. It wasn't a great build-up, but to have a great competition and a great start to the international season, I'm really happy."
