“Making the semi-finals was amazing," Watson said of her showing. "To be able to go out there again and dive was great. I just love flying through the air!
"I was nervous up there a bit, but at the end of the day, once I am at the end of the board, I am focusing on something specific so I am just trying to do the best that I can with that really.”
