Before the Olympics Canadian diver Pamela Ware was touted to make the next step and win her first individual medal but that wasn’t quite the case. Pamela previously won Olympic medals in synchronized swimming and came in 4th place in the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Pamela unfortunately misjudged her approach which caused her to jump feet first, a big no when it comes to diving. The 28 year old told CBC “I think that if I would have done the dive, I could have possibly hurt myself,”. Later on she also posted a video to her Instagram thanking her fans for all the love shown to her. She also said “I have done everything possible to make it to where I am. I hope you guys are going to get used to having me around because I’m not going anywhere, I’m not giving up.” The diver clearly exhibited the right mentality to have after your plan doesn’t work out.

Pamela should be proud of her achievements as even qualifying for the Olympics is commendable feat in and of itself. This experience will only make her stronger and better for the next Olympics. We wish her the best of luck.
