Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Diving

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 Gold Coast Aquatic Centre for the Diving competition. There will be individual competition for both men and women from the one metre springboard, three metre springboard and the daunting 10 metre platform. Adding another dynamic, pairs of divers will team up for the synchronised three metre springboard and 10 metre platform events.
