He made his Commonwealth debut in the same season in Delhi, finishing 11th in the 3m Springboard and seventh with Oliver Dingley in the 3m Synchro. He made impressive progress in his first full senior season last year, winning his first British Championship title from the 3m Springboard before finishing eighth in the same event at his first World Championships in Shanghai. Jack has carried his form into 2012, finishing eighth at the World Cup in London, sixth at the European Championships in Eindhoven, then defending his British title to qualify for his first Olympic Games.
