DIVING EVENTS MAKES SURE BEST EVENTS THIS SUMMER OLYMPICS 2012
At 18th FINA Visa Diving World Cup in London, more than 250 top of the world swimmers and divers will be displaying their talent and desparation to win the Aquatics Centre. The competition will take place from 20th to 26th of February and will be acting as a trial time as London prepares for the 30th Olympic Games which are to be held this summer.
Great Britain gets the best diving team for the synchronised 10m Platform diving event.
In the synchronised 10m platform diving team, quite a number of talented divers such as He Chong & Chen Ruolin will be showing their talent. Chong is the defending champion in the 2012 3m Springboard diving while Chen has double Olympic gold in 10m Platform & Synchronised 10m Platform each.
While China stands as the strongest diving team, a tough competition will be given by the Matt Mitcham’s Australian team. Matt is the lone non Chinese to have won a gold at the 2008 Olympics diving even where he grabbed the gold in 10m Platform diving.
As far the British team is concerned, around 13 divers will be participating this time which includes some popular names like Tom Daley, Pete Waterfield and the present World Junior Champion in 3m Springboard and 1m Springboard, Jack Laugher. In the women category, high hopes will be from Tonia Couch. Finished at 8th spot in the 10m Platform at the Olympics, Couch has been finishing at the pinnacle spots since last two FINA championships. FINA championship is prominent sporting event in the area of diving and as Olympic Games get around the corner, this will be a great chance for LOCOG (London 2012 Organizing Committee) to get the Aquatics Centre tested and highlighted for the Games.
The championship will also serve as direct tool to test the basic amenities and services available at the Aquatics Centre such as lighting, clean water, timing tools, management etc. This would in turn a great opportunity to the LOCOG to get the things in the best of the alignments for the Games.
According to Debbie Jevans, 18th FINA Visa Diving World Cup 2012 would serve as a perfect stage for the Aquatics Centre to get the world’s best divers to compete and will also serve as a great opportunity for organisers to check the operations. Jevans, who is the Direct of Sport in the 2012 London, seems definitely quite optimistic about the Games for sure.
