The top junior divers in Canada will compete in the 2010 Speedo Junior National Championship at the Pan Am Pool this Thursday through Sunday.

The event will also serve as the qualification meet for the 2010 FINA World Junior Championship, which will be held in Tucson, Ariz., Sept. 2-6.

About 200 of the top junior divers in Canada will compete for 24 national titles in both springboard and platform events.

“Along with the prestige of holding a national level event, the greatest benefit for us as a club here in Winnipeg is the interest it can create in young kids within our community,” John Webster, the head of the local organizing committee said in a release.
