Divers Set Sights on Azteca Gold
Olympic medallist Tom Daley will lead a strong British Gas GBR Diving Team on a three-week international tour as the athletes continue to develop their list of dives ahead of the 2013 World Championships.
The action begins tomorrow in the U.S. state of Florida where the fourth leg of the FINA Grand Prix series gets underway in Fort Lauderdale.
Daley, off the back of his FINA Diving World Series 10m platform gold medal in Edinburgh last month, will look to build on the good progress he has made in a season where his prime objective has been to dismantle his dives, analyse each element of a routine, make improvements and adjustments, and then put them back together.
Continuing this season’s development, Daley (Plymouth) will use the next three weeks to develop the level of consistency that is required to succeed on the world stage.
And he will be joined by British divers that have already mounted the podium this season. Chris Mears (Southampton) and Nick Robinson-Baker (Sheffield) have medalled in the 3m Synchro while Becky Gallantree (Leeds) will dive individually after securing two international medals so far in the 3m Synchro.
The British contingent will compete in Florida (9-12 May) before continuing the FINA Diving World Series with legs in Guadalajara, Mexico (7-19 May) and Mexico City (24-26 May).
