Molson Dives in

GTA Diving Club

You never know what your fellow employees are up to when not in the office, so isn’t it great when you find out that someone is doing something really cool — something you never expected?  Well, that happened to me last week when I learned that Graham Hopper, a Molson employee, is also a diver-extrodinaire at the GTA Diving Club.

Graham joined the club a year ago to find a unique way to get into shape as well as overcome his fear of heights.  He trains with a coach who has produced three Olympic divers and is now diving from the 5-meter platform, doing flips on the trampoline and hand stands on the lower diving board!  His ultimate goal is diving from the 10-meter platform.

When Graham first joined the club, it was in critical need of training equipment. So, being a company that supports sports facilities and programs, Molson provided a $3,000 donation to help purchase training equipment like a trampoline and safety harnesses.

Well done Graham!  As a former competitive swimmer/lifeguard, I have a great appreciation for the water, but can’t say I’ve ever dived off a 10-meter platform!
