Courage Rarely Seen

With a calm focus and poise, the diver concentrates. With a quiet anticipation and glare, the crowd awaits.

Then take off. Balance, speed, grace, flexibility and precision are all packaged into seconds.

The diver pierces the water with barely a ripple or splash. The crowd erupts into cheers and applause as the diver emerges from the pool.

Now the tense wait as the judges consider the dive’s degree of difficulty and execution. What will be their score?

That is a glimpse of the aerobatic action set to absorb fans at the picturesque Optus Aquatic Centre for the Diving competition.

There will be individual competition for both men and women from the 1m springboard, 3m springboard and the daunting 10m platform.

Adding another dynamic, pairs of divers will team up for the synchronised 3m springboard and 10m platform events.
