DV: JANSEN (NED) - 'I am working my a*** off every day'

EDINBURGH - Comments from Inge JANSEN (NED) after she finished 15th in the women's 3m springboard preliminaries on Saturday and failed to qualify for the final in the evening at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.


On failing to make the final despite being among the leading divers in the World Series:

"I have had a tough year with a lot of changes. I was not 100 per cent well prepared. Sometimes it is not your day and today was not my day.

"I am working my a*** off every day to make this competition. I cannot imagine the last time I did not make the final. It is a really tough day. "   

On the reasons for her lack of top form:

"I changed coaches. I have an amazing coach. But I have changed a lot of techniques in my diving. Everything is a little bit messy at the moment. I'm disappointed."
