Diver puts fear to flight SHANNON ANDREUCCI JUNIOR SPORTS STAR 2009 CUMBERLAND COURIER MAJOR SPONSOR Junior Sports Star Josiah Purss love the adrenaline rush of platform diving. FEAR of heights has never really been an issue for Trinity Grammar School diving talent Josiah Purss, whose highest feat yet has been an impress- ive 10 metres. The 16-year-old has showed he is a fearless competitor, wowing sup- porters with some outstanding achievements. These include scoring three silver medals when he represented NSW at the Pacific School Games in Canberra last December. ''It was a great experience because there were many international com- petitors from New Zealand and Macau, so it was good to get the feel of international tournaments,'' he said. Purss also competed for his school in the Combined As- sociated Schools cham- pionships this month, finishing in first place in both the intermedi- ate and open events, and has been selected to represent the CAS at the Independent School Championships. Trinity's platform star has been diving for almost four years now and would recommend it to others, as it's a sport you can both work hard in and enjoy. ''I love the adrenaline you get in platform diving and the fact that there is so much variety -- no dives are the same,'' he said. His school sportsmaster, John Allen, who nominated Purss for this Junior Sports Star award, is very proud of his achievements and com- mitment to diving. ''He devotes a lot of his time to diving every week in both wet and dry training sessions. He's an exceptional young tal- ent,'' Mr Allen said. Vigorous training is a significant part of Purss's diving career, whose training includes 10 times a week with the NSW Institute of Sport.
