Chrisoula Tatsios

Chrisoula Tatsios, a competitive diver and member of the St. George Greek Church in Downey, competed July 27 in the Junior Olympics at the AAU National Championships in Huntisville, N.C. She placed 25th in a field of over 600 divers competing in some 50 teams. Chrisoula, 15, has only been diving competitively the last three years, training at the Pacific Diving Academy of Santa Fe Springs. "Diving in the Nationals taught me so much," said Chrisoula, a student at Troy High School in Fullerton. "I got to drive with some of the best girls in the country." Chrisoula says she is now working extra hard - practicing 18 hours each week - to catch up to the girls who have been diving years longer than she has. "We expect to see great things from her," said Fr. John Constantine of St. George. ********** Published: September 13, 2012 - Volume 11 - Issue 22
