Mélodie Leclerc of Montreal’s Club CAMO was second at 284.85 and Alyssa Clairmont of the Regina Diving Club third at 284.40. ‘’To win three gold medals is beyond my expectations,’’ said Doucet-Vallée, 13, who earned a single bronze at last year’s development nationals. ‘’The platform is the event I prefer the least but again my hard work in training paid off.’’ In the boys 11 and under one-metre, Fofana won a close battle for his third gold with 288.75 points.
