Diving Canada – Diving competition will run from July 2nd to 8th at the Mostra d’Oltremare Swimming Pool
 

Ottawa, June 28th, 2019 – Diving Plongeon Canada is pleased to present the divers named to the Canadian team that will compete in the 30th edition of the FISU Summer Universiade.

With his recent successes on the national and international scene, Peter Thach Mai will lead the team in Italy. The 20-year-old won the silver medal on 3-metre at the FINA Diving Grand Prix in Bolzano earlier this month, a few weeks after being crowned national champion in the same event.
 
Canada will also be represented by Ethan Pitman and Laurent Gosselin-Paradis in the men’s platform events. The pair combined to win a bronze medal at the 2018 and 2019 FINA Diving Grand Prix in Calgary.
 
The women’s team will feature Elaena Dick, a two-time Junior Pan American champion on platform, as well as Olivia Chamandy and Mia Vallée on springboard. Chamandy and Vallée will join forces in the synchronized event and try to repeat their performance from the 2017 FINA Diving Grand Prix in Madrid, where they won gold.
