Canada Cup diving Grand Prix: Despatie wins the silver medal

Lavery warmly congratulates Alexandre Despatie for his performance at the 2012 Canada Cup – FINA Diving Grand Prix, held this weekend at Montréal’s Olympic Park Pool. The triple world champion and double Olympic medalist, who won the silver medal in men’s 3m springboard, said he felt increasingly confident, after a pause of almost one year caused by a knee injury.

"Combined with the bronze medal he won at the 2012 FINA World Cup in London in February, this podium indicates that Alexandre is making a very impressive return to the competition,” said Élise Poisson, Lavery Managing Partner. “Our whole team is very proud to support such a talented and competitive athlete.” Lavery has sponsored Alexandre Despatie since June 2009.

The 2012 Olympic Trials will be held at the same venue, next May 25 to 27.
