World Championship gold medallist Laura Marino posted a video on her Instagram showing her completing a spectacular dive in Wied il-Mielaħ in Gozo.
French diver Marino was in Malta on holiday and posted her attempt to dive from 22 metres height in what she described as a ‘new personal record’.
Marino travelled to Malta with her friends for a week where she practised her favourite discipline in several areas around Malta and Gozo.
“Incredible energy from the whole team, unbelievable records for everyone, amazing spot… hard to end this Malta trip in a better way… I feel so grateful for this experience with everyone,” Marino wrote on her Instagram account.
Marino is a high-profile diving champion from France who represented her country in several high-profile competitions around the world.
Her first major appearance was at the 2015 World Aquatic Championships and a year later was selected to represent her country at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Marino’s biggest achievement arrived in 2017 when partnered with Mathhieu Rosset, she won the gold medal in the team event at the World Championships held in Budapest, Hungary.
