2010 Diving World Series

It’s the World Series! Well of course not for baseball… but now there is a World Series of Diving. Due to that pesky volcano in Iceland, the final leg of the 2010 Diving World Series was finalized in Mexico on April 20th-21st, instead of April 23-24th in England.


Olympic Orders

This high-profile diving competition just recently started in 2007 as an annual event to give divers an annual opportunity to compete against each other. The Diving World Series helps sets the bar for the divers around the World to prepare for the Summer Olympics. Now instead of only competing every 4 years, they have a chance to see just how good the competition is every year.


Volcano Steals English Medal

That volcano might have helped Mexico’s home favorite German Sanchez get the bronze medal as he narrowly edged World Champion Tom Daley by 0.8 points in the men’s 10 metre platform final. Tom Daley is from England so you got to figure he’s a little peeved at that volcano for taking away his chances of diving in front of his home fans.


Qiu Bo Conquers

China is dominating the sport of diving and they continued to dominate in Mexico. Chinese diver Qiu Bo stunned the Mexican crowd with perfect 10s from all judges with all of his dives. He ended up with 3 out of the 4 possible gold medals.


Chinese Champs

It seems like the Chinese have the secret to perfection in the sport of diving. Since the World Series began, China has won 20 Gold Medals out of a possible 24 events. Now that doesn’t seem fair, but perhaps the World Series is just what divers from other countries need to inspire them to improve.
