The Olympic medallist, Commonwealth Games champion and poster boy for the Great British Olympics Tom Daley will be joined by other superstars of world diving when they make their way to Dubai for the second leg of the FINA/NVC Diving World Series 2015 later this month.
Taking place at the Hamdan Sports Complex from March 19 to 21, this year’s event features an impressive line up including world champions from China, Great Britain, Russia and the USA.
Crowd favourite – and British heartthrob – Tom Daley will certainly be ready to settle a few scores after a disappointing result last year when he left empty-handed from the same games. He returns to the emirate, leading the British team and is set to spring into action for the men’s 10 metre platform battling it out against divers David Boudia from the US, Ivan Garcia and German Sanchez from Mexico, Sascha Klein from Germany, Maxsym Dolgov from Ukraine, Vincent Riendeau from Canada, Vadim Kaptur from Belrus and, of course, Yang Jian and Qiu Bo from China
“We are delighted to be welcoming the world’s best divers back to Dubai for the FINA/NVC Diving World Series. We were thrilled to witness an incredible display of diving in the last three Diving World Series events in Dubai, and with another line-up featuring multiple world and Olympic champions the stage is set for another superb event”, said Ahmed Al Falasi, President of the UAE Swimming Federation.
Tickets to the FINA/NVC Diving World Series cost Dhs40 and are available at the door at the Hamdan Sports Complex.
