Top diving coach Andy Banks to stay in Plymouth

World-class diving coach Andy Banks will be staying in Plymouth, thanks to a funding package put together by the City Council in partnership with University of St Mark and St John, Plymouth College and Everyone Active.

Banks, who is the only British diving coach to have coached an Olympic medal-winning diver at London 2012, announced earlier this summer that he was considering a funding offer from Canadian Diving. This would have meant leaving Plymouth in February 2015, when his current contract with British Diving comes to an end.

The news prompted hundreds to sign a petition to keep him in the city and Council Leader Tudor Evans pledged that the Council would exert its influence “to ensure that Andy stays where he belongs”.

Councillor Evans said: “There is no way we want to lose Andy Banks! He is a world-class coach who attracts world-class talent to Plymouth and he has nurtured some of diving’s biggest and best names."
