Taylor Pai could barely contain her excitement over her silver medal win in the one-metre dive at the BC Winter Games on Friday.

“I feel pretty great, considering I’ve never come close to the girl who beat me before,” she said.  “If I had kicked a little higher I actually would have beaten her, which is a personal best for me.  Some of the girls I beat today I’ve never beaten before, so it’s just amazing.”

Pai noted her older sister Kylea, a former competitive diver at the BC Winter Games, was a big help before the competition, providing tips and details of what to expect. 

With two more events ahead, Pai is excited about what’s to come.
