Ashley Anderson’s specialty is cutting through water. She’s the knife.
Anderson, a local diver, was a double-medalist at the 2010 B.C. Summer Games. She claimed gold in the three-metre springboard and silver in the one-metre. Earlier that season, at the winter provincial championships, Anderson was awarded silver and bronze medals in the same events.
Anderson has been diving for five years and has benefited from training under the watchful eyes of Qaing Fu, a world-class Chinese coach. Anderson also plays soccer and still finds the time and energy to be an honour roll Grade 11 student at Westside Academy. She recently attended the Taiwan International Science Fair and placed third in the environmental category.
