17-year-old Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix was over the moon after profitable the gold medal within the ladies’s 10m platform on the Commonwealth Games in 2022. On Thursday, August 4 on the Sandwell Aquatics Centre, she racked up 357.50 factors and completed on high.

She eased previous her teammate Lois Toulson, the 2018 Gold Coast bronze medallist, who gained the silver medal this time round. Caeli McKay of Canada bagged the bronze medal after gaining 317.50 factors.

After profitable gold, Spendolini-Sirieix stated that she didn’t have butterflies in her abdomen. Rather, she stated that she loved each little bit of the competitors in Birmingham.

“I’m very, very happy. It’s amazing, especially for it to be in a home Games and the first time I’ve actually had a crowd, because I didn’t have one at Tokyo 2020 and the other internationals I’ve done. It’s incredible. I’ve had so much fun and I wasn’t really scared. I was peaceful,” Spendolini-Sirieix was quoted as saying on the CWG website.

“I used to be peaceable all through, however on the final dive I had fairly shaky calves, so I believe that helped with the push that I wanted. Overall, I’ve by no means had that a lot enjoyable in a contest,” she stated.

Spendolini-Sirieix gave the Perry mascot to his brother and also joked a bit when asked about his father, Fred Sirieix, who’s a popular TV personality. Moreover, she talked about how proud her family was after she won the CWG gold.

“Whoa. Well, possibly. We’ll see, we’ll see. I’ve spoken to my mum, my dad and my brother. I gave Perry to my brother simply because it is essentially the most I can do to say ‘thanks’. They stated ‘properly carried out’. I might see tears of their eyes. I did not actually need to look them within the eye in case I cried.

“[My dad gave me a] thumbs up. I believe he did not need to cry, so he did not say a lot. He could not come to Tokyo, so he prioritised coming to Birmingham. And he got here to worlds as properly,” Spendolini-Sirieix added.
