Post the London 2012 Olympic Games and due to athlete injury, the sport predicted a rebuilding year and did not win a medal at the 2013 world championships in Barcelona. However, overall performances have been declining at Olympic level since Athens 2004 and the sport is looking to show improvement in 2014 to demonstrate it is on track for medals in Rio 2016. Diving Australia (DA) is considering the application of its high performance resources to ensure that the daily training environment provided to athletes is of the required standard. This consideration will need to be part of the formulation of its high performance plan for Rio, together with providing a greater focus to the synchronised pairs events.

A move to a company limited by guarantee and an updated constitution was endorsed at the Annual General Meeting in October 2013 and DA is in the process of adopting policies and procedures to fully comply with the ASC’s mandatory governance principles. The key areas for attention include creating a single strategic direction for the sport and an annual performance evaluation process for the board.

Diving has a small participation base and the sport does not currently have the facilities or capacity to deliver significant participation outcomes.
