Athlete of the week: Anna Caniglia from Omaha Burke

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Anna Caniglia has a very brilliant diving career ahead of her that will include many medals and records.

She is only a sophomore of Omaha Burke High School, but she is already on that path.

Caniglia recently broke the Burke Pool record. She beat it by ten points in a meeting where she felt she was underfulfilled by what she is capable of.

“I was just in the mood for the first meeting so I was all nervous and not doing my best, but it was still a good meeting,” said Caniglia.

Her trainer Kevin Hansen believes she can go very far in her career.

“She is in her sophomore year so a lot more is going to happen to her. I mean, that could be Olympic stuff and it’s so good, ”said Hansen.

Caniglia finished third as a newcomer.

She told WOWT she was working extremely hard to perfect the harder dives in hopes of getting even better this year.
