Olympic champion gymnast Amy Chow dives into diving
Check out this article in Palo Alto Online: "Olympian Amy Chow dives into a new challenge Former Olympic gold-medal gymnast from Castilleja and Stanford has resurfaced as a doctor and a potential elite diver" Palo Alto Online : Olympian Amy Chow dives into a new challenge From recreational diving to elite level and maybe the 2012 London Olympics: [QUOTE]Chow also had been diving for nearly two years by then, stopping by Avery Aquatic Center in the evening after finally giving into a friend who had been "bugging me" about it. "It was Masters diving in the evenings," Chow said. "You'd stop by whenever you had time." When Chow moved to the East Bay to begin her private practice, she had to find other times to dive. That led her to Schavone, the tower and yet another challenge in what has been an interesting and successful athletic career. As for her first time on the tower, which rises more than 30 feet into the air? "It was a little scary," she said. "But, I'd rather dive off it than jump." [/QUOTE]

Chow got injured on the final dive of her last practice before heading to the zone qualifying meet, so was not able to compete in Tucson, Arizona last weekend.

Amy would fit in with the other gymnasts competing. Good advantage for the handstand start dives on platform.
