Reaching speeds of up to 60kph, diving is an incredibly specialised aquatic discipline in which athletes leap from platforms or springboards elevated to a height of three metres and 10 metres above the pool.
During their fall, they do a number of spins, flips and twists before hitting the water and are given a score based on the degree of difficulty and ease displayed by the athletes while performing their programme.
Leon Taylor and Pete Waterfield ended a 44 year wait for a Team GB Olympic diving medal at Athens 2004 before Tom Daley delighted the home crowd at London 2012 to win bronze and take GB’s all-time diving medal haul to seven.
