Meet Sophie McAfee: The American diver looking for Youth Olympic Gold | Youth Olympic Games


My name is Sophie McAfee and I’m a diver. I started out as a swimmer,
I was about 7 years old. I had always wanted to go off the boards. I even wanted to go off 10 meters at 7 years’ old
and then once I did I never stopped. I focus on the very important but small details that make a dive go from a 9 to a 10 on the box. The adrenaline that I have before a dive,
I am a little scared but also really excited to go. That adrenaline is just so big and so nice. Everyone’s dream is to go the Olympics
and it is mine too. Going to the Youth Olympic Games
would be amazing. I love representing my country,
my team and my family. I haven’t been to many international meets before, so I just think the experience would be amazing
to be with other divers who are so good and I can’t wait to see whats going to come next.
