Montreal's Olivia Chamandy won her second gold in as many days Winter Senior Diving Nationals in Calgary.

Chamandy, 16,  took top prize in the open three-metre final one day after winning the 10-metre tower event. Elaena Dick and Ashley McCool rounded out the podium on Sunday.

"I was pretty nervous for the final," Chamandy said. "After I missed my third dive I was determined to do well the rest of the way and was rewarded for that. I'm happy I was able to keep it together. Really pleased overall with my weekend."

Ethan Pitman won the men's open platform final, placing ahead of Alexandre Corriveau and Laurent Gosselin-Paradis.

"I knew it was going to be a really close competition," the 19-year-old Pitman said. "Everyone dove well today. I didn't have any misses or any amazing dives but it was really consistent. I tried not to watch the scoreboard but it's so big you can't miss it so I knew what I had to do.''
