“We have selected a strong team of divers for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games which includes an Olympic medallist and four world medallists. It’s good to see four divers making their Olympic debut too.

“In the last two years we have seen impressive performances from the team to not only win medals at the World Championships in 2015 but also secure all but one of our quota places at the World Cup in February.

“I know that each one of our 11 divers will continue to work hard in the coming weeks to ensure they are in the best shape possible for their competition day in Rio.”
