The NSWIS Diving Program, in partnership with Diving Australia and Diving NSW, aims to support Australian divers and coaches to win medals at the Olympic Games and benchmark events.

A national high performance centre with world class coaches including head coach Chava Sobrino, the program supports talented emerging athletes and elite athletes in the daily training environment.

The program boasts a successful history, most notably Australia’s first male diving Olympic gold medallist since 1924, Matthew Mitcham. In 2008, Mitcham made Olympic history coming from 30 points behind, and on his final dive, to score 112.10 to shock himself and the diving world and rob the Chinese of a full sweep of Olympic diving medals.

In winning the Beijing Olympic 10m Platform title Mitcham became the only diver in Olympic history to produce a perfect 10 score from all judges.
