Diving Australia has been rated on track to achieving its Rio Olympic goal.

It had a successful 2015 international season qualifying athletes for half the quota spots for the Rio Games. It won two medals (one non-Olympic) at the world championships as well as fourth in the women’s 3m, fifth in the women’s 10m, fourth in mixed 3m synchro and fifth in the women’s 1m.

Feedback from Diving Australia, state institutes and academies for sport (SIS/SAS) partners and AIS colleagues suggests that the three-centre model, linked to its national coaching panel and performance centre appears to be raising the standard across the network. Work is needed to better align efforts behind the Diving Australia Synchro Plan initiative.

The organisation needs to continue refining its restructured leadership model, with additional planning, alignment and appraisals before the Olympic Games, and reassessment post Rio.

Diving Australia has increased communication across its stakeholder group and will seek greater alignment of its elite pathway program and on-site leadership via the national coach.


Diving Australia is progressing with its governance reform and has been working to make the necessary changes in line with the MSGP. The organisation has addressed key areas involving board composition and operation in line with these principles, which will be further assisted by the finalisation of its audit and risk committee.
