Great Britain’s divers ready to compete against the world’s best in Japan

Eleven of Great Britain’s world-class divers will compete in Fukuoka, Japan from 14-22 July for the World Aquatics Diving Championships.

They will face the world’s best divers for a championships that also serves as a vital qualifier for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The 11-strong squad contains five divers that medalled in the competition last year, where Team GB finished second in the medal table in Budapest.

The 2022 team won six medals – three silver and three bronze – as the squad were the closest challengers to a Chinese team that swept all 13 golds in Hungary.

Jack Laugher was the star of the show for Great Britain and he’s back for more after winning two silvers and a bronze last year.

The City of Leeds diver won two individual medals, with silver from the 1m Springboard and bronze in the 3m event. He then had further success from 3m after teaming with Anthony Harding in the 3m Synchronised Springboard to claim his second silver of the championships.

Olympic champion, Matty Lee, and Noah Williams also impressed to win silver in the 10m Platform competition, whilst Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix won bronze in her maiden World Championships alongside Scotland’s James Heatly in the Mixed Team event.

Even more on the line

Heatly also teamed up with fellow Scot, Grace Reid, in the Mixed 3m Synchronised event to win bronze but neither are competing in Fukuoka after their recent exploits at the European Games.

Harding, Lee, Williams and Spendolini-Sirieix are all back alongside Laugher however, as they look to get themselves back on the podium at the Fukuoka Prefectural Pool.

They will be joined by Daniel Goodfellow, Yasmin Harper, Jordan Houlden, Scarlett Mew Jensen, Lois Toulson and World Championships debutant, Kyle Kothari.

This year, there is even more on the line, as the championships give a great opportunity for Great Britain to secure a number of places at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The top 12 finishers in the 3m and 10m individual events each obtain an Olympic quota spot for their nation, whilst the top three teams (excluding France) in the men’s and women’s 3m and 10m synchronised events also book a spot in the French capital next summer.
