What you'll do

Here is your chance to learn some diving basics, what it takes to become an Olympic diver, and what to look out for when you next watch diving at the Olympics. Diving is one of the most popular sports at the Olympic Games, but how much do you really know about it? Divers spend thousands of hours in the pool and years of physical training to perfect their five or six dives, but only have a couple of seconds to perform these skills at the Olympics.
In this interactive experience, you will watch diving drama unfold along with me and get contextual, personal, and in-depth analysis of each dive and diver, whilst being able to practice your judging.
There will also be time for a Q&A with me, during which you can find out more about my Olympic experiences and life as a professional diver.
This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.
Other things to note
The experience will be best viewed from a laptop screen, so you can see the smaller details in the dives. Please join with video and audio but be mindful if you have any background noise, if so please mute yourself, but feel free to ask questions whenever you need to!

I am the first Jamaican diver to compete at the Olympic Games since 1972. After growing up in Leeds, England, I chose to represent my father's heritage and have competed at every international level, including the Rio 2016 Games. I'm a level 2 diving coach, which I've been doing alongside my training since 2013. I also have a degree in Sport and Exercise Science from Leeds Beckett University.
