Transcript Star diver Linda Pesek. Photo by Tony Bullard Diving in As a diver, nineteen-year-old Linda Pesek had had a comparably short career — starting at the age of fourteen (ten is the common starting age). Nevertheless, in a short time, Linda has achieved national standings. She attributed much of her success to the encouragement of her family. "The two biggest influences in my diving career are my mother and my boyfriend," Pesek said. As with other sports, a big part of diving depends on the athlete's state of mind and confidence level. For this, Pesek places a great deal of faith in the Lord. "Christ is a big part of my life. I pray for His protection, for confidence and for calmness," said Pesek. Pesek has been competing nationally for several years. "This year I felt like I belonged there (at the Nationals), not like last year." UH diving coach Dave Parrington has been coaching Linda for over three years. "I have learned alot from him," Linda says. "He's an outstanding coach. Linda doesn't compete against other divers nor against established records — she competes against herself. Her goals for next year are to make the U.S. national finals, make top three in the NCAA and to be one of the top two in the SWC. Her ultimate goal is to compete in the Olympic Trials and get a chance to compete in the next Olympic games. ► Mauro Aguirre Divers Hanneke Faber (left) and Linda Pesek soar in unison.
