Last chance

The event represents the last chance for some divers to achieve selection for this summer’s LEN European Aquatic Championships in Glasgow.

Some of the best divers in the world are expected in China for the World Cup, which is held every two years.

In 2016, Great Britain returned from Rio with two bronze medals as Tom Daley and Daniel Goodfellow finished third in the synchronised 10m platform, a feat achieved by Sarah Barrow and Tonia Couch tin the women’s event.
