A show of sportsmanship
Cal Baptist diver gives gold medal to injured opponent
On Tuesday, Colorado Mesa's top diver and favorite to win the 1-meter at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championship Meet, Amanda Jennings, got hurt at practice and had to withdraw from the competition.
California Baptist divers, Lauren Skinner and Breanne Schlenger, decided together that whoever won the event, they would give their gold medal to Jennings and Skinner kept her word.
A big thank you to @CBUswim diver Lauren Skinner! A real class act to give away your medal.— Colorado Mesa S&D (@CMUswimdive) February 13, 2015
