Art Stott

Art Stott was a great Canadian diver and he represented his nation at the British Empire Games and at the Olympics. During the 1920s, Art became Vancouver Island and B.C. senior men's champion and earned two golds, two silvers and a bronze in five national championships. Art placed second in the Canadian trials for the first British Empire (now Commonwealth) Games in 1930 and he placed second in springboard at the Canadian trials for the 1932 Los Angeles Summer Olympics. His diving prowess was evident as a 13-year-old when he won the Junior Boys Pacific Northwest three-metre title in 1923. As well as his competitive diving accomplishments, Art competed in England with the Highgate Diving Club, putting on acrobatic shows for awe-struck audiences. He became an international diving judge and was a founding member of the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame.
