Declan Stacey competed for the first time internationally in his very short career ….. 11 months!
He participated at the FINA Grand Prix platform event at the Gold Coast in Queensland.
Declan got the bronze medal in an incredible effort when today one year ago he was still a gymnast living in Canberra, he decided to move to diving in November last year and started training platform only 4 months ago.
Declan was numb and speechless after the event; “I can’t believe what just happened imagining that only a year ago I was a gymnast! I feel I am dreaming!
Obviously Declan has a lot of talent but his biggest asset is his full dedication and the incredible believe and motivation… he is the full package.
