Live and Let Dive for Cambridge coach Sam
"The name’s Buck, Sam Buck”. Cambridge Dive Team’s head coach may not go around paraphrasing James Bond’s iconic introduction. But he almost had a legitimate right to do so after auditioning to be Daniel Craig’s stunt double for Casino Royale. Buck, who began coaching with Cambridge in 2006, said: “I could have gone down a different road and done stunt work because I signed up to a couple of agencies and did some TV adverts and stunt shows while I was at university.

Shock victory for student star Charlotte
CHARLOTTE Reid admits she was somewhat of a surprise winner at the British Universities & Colleges Sports (BUCS) Gatorade Nationals, although the Hitchin swimmer would love to keep that tag going when it comes to trying to qualify for this summer’s Commonwealth Games in Scotland.
The 18-year-old Hatfield SC member headed to Sheffield’s Ponds Forge to pit herself against Britain’s best student swimmers. And while not one of the leading names in the 50m backstroke, the former Hitchin Girls School pupil pulled it out of the bag by taking top spot on the medal rostrum at the British Universities Student Championships.
It was a close-run thing however with Reid touching the wall in 30.42 seconds, just one hundredth of a second ahead of second-placed Victoria Hevey.
