Our diving F-Teamers raked in the bling at the Gold Coast FINA Diving Grand Prix over the weekend. Aussies Anabelle Smith, Alysha Koloi and Kate Rosman, as well as Team USA diver Krysta Palmer, took to the skies, competing against divers from around the world.

Olympic Bronze Medallist Anabelle Smith spoke to Funkita before the event and let us know how excited she was to compete at the FINA Grand Prix, saying "any opportunity to represent Australia is a privilege and I love competing with a home crowd." She competed with Dominic Bedggood in the 3m Mixed Synchro event for the first time this weekend and they turned out to be a fantastic pair, winning gold.

American Krysta Palmer and her synchro partner Lauren Reedy competed in the 3m Synchro event and came away with a silver medal. Krysta also won her first individual international medal when she finished third in the individual 3m event, an event where she went head to head with brand new F-Teamer Alysha Koloi.

Alysha Koloi
Alysha flew through the individual 3m springboard, claiming the silver medal.

Alysha, the youngest member of the Australian National Squad, was originally a national level gymnast but made the switch to diving two years ago after being inspired while watching her younger sister train. She has made incredible progress since then and can now add the FINA Gold Coast Grand Prix to her growing resume of international competitions. Over the weekend she claimed silver in the individual 3m, her first individual medal at a FINA Grand Prix.

Young gun Kate Rosman also competed at the event and managed to make it to the semi-final in the individual 3m springboard.
