Sports: Diving

Serena Clare Leipsic Buchwald came into diving at age 11. The Winnipeg-born athlete had just quit gymnastics and was looking for a sport that involved flipping. In her second year of diving, Serena had a brush with some of the best divers around when Winnipeg played host to the Senior Nationals competition, allowing her to dive with and watch these athletes compete.

Now Serena is competing in the Senior Nationals, and made finals in her three-metre event, getting her a spot at Olympic trials. A good feat for an athlete whose ultimate goal in sport is to “go as far as possible (in diving), for as long as possible.”

Family in sport: Serena’s mom is a National Champion Speed Skater, and her twin sister is in the professional division at a ballet school.
