Emily Boyd (diving) overcame multiple injuries and depression to make her Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham where she won bronze in 10m mixed synchronised with Cassiel Rousseau. She was also 6th in 10m synchronised with Nikita Hains in their first major event as a pairing and 7th in 10m individual event. Emily was born in England and did gymnastics before being attracted to diving after watching a friend’s training session. The family moved to Australia a week later and just a few days after arriving in Brisbane, the then 12-year-old went to a school holiday clinic at Chandler and she was hooked. Making remarkable progress, Emily was part of the Australian team for the 2012 FINA World Junior Championships, before competing in the senior titles in Barcelona the following year where she finished 4th in the 10m platform synchronised with Lara Tarvit. Not long after missing selection for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, Emily announced she would be competing for Great Britain and was set to compete at the Canada Cup before withdrawing due to injury. As she never competed for her country of birth, she was permitted to return to the Australian fold in 2017 without serving the usual two-year suspension.
