World champion diver Rebecca Gallantree announces her retirement

World champion diver Rebecca Gallantree has announced her retirement from the sport.

Gallantree won gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the Women's 3m synchronised springboard partnering Alicia Blagg.

"Representing Team GB at three Olympic Games, winning a Commonwealth gold medal with Alicia, and a World Championship gold medal with Tom were all things that I would never have imagined 10 years ago.  Competing in front of a home crowd at London 2012, in particular, will always be one of my fondest memories.  I hope that my diving career has helped show what can be achieved with passion, determination, and hard work."
