Well done National Divers who competed at the FINA Diving World Cup 2021 in Tokyo, Japan.

Mark and Timothy Lee took part in the Men 3m Springboard and finished 38th (323.10pts) and 45th (303.50pts) respectively.
Our 10m platform divers, Jonathan Chan and Freida Lim also competed at the World Cup. Jonathan placed 24th (371.80pts) and also competed in the Men’s 10m synchronised with partner, Max Lee placing 15th (318.18pts).
Freida competed in the Women 10m Platform and qualified for the semi-finals placing 15th (272.35pts). Her performance at the World Cup earned her spot in the Olympics later this year, making her the first female diver to qualify for Singapore!
Freida picked up diving under our founding head coach Orla in 2012. She is now coaching our Learn-to-Dive programme. Job well done to all the divers!
