Jeff Liberty showed he was a serious threat for a spot on the Olympic team
with a solid 1999 season. He posted a string of successful results
beginning in May at the Grand Prix meet in Montreal with a bronze on
one-metre, his first career international medal. At the national
championships a few weeks later he displayed his versatility placing first
on one and 10-met re for his first two career Canadian crowns. Those
performances earned him a berth at the Pan Am Games in Winnipeg, the city
where he grew up and learned to dive. He placed fourth on three-metre with
a personal best score competing before thousands which included family and
friends. He also participated at the 2000 World Cup which gave him a
taste of Olympic level competition.
