Team England has announced the Diving Squad for the 2018 Commonwealth Games and Croydon will (hopefully) be helping us to victory.

The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games begin in April and Team England has selected 13 divers who will compete for ‘Team and Country’ in Australia.

Katherine Torrance from Croydon is just 20 years old and has never competed in the Commonwealth Games before.

Team England have previously won 67 medals in diving at the Commonwealth Games, including 27 gold and topped the diving medal table at Glasgow 2014.

Three-time Commonwealth champion, reigning world champion and double Olympic bronze medallist Tom Daley will be returning to the Commonwealth stage as he headlines Team England’s diving squad for the Games.

Daley, who will be competing in the individual 10m platform and 3m synchronised events, said: “I had a great year last year, retaining my 10m title at the World Championships, and I am hoping that I can build on that and put in some great performances out on the Gold Coast in April.”

To prepare for the games, England will hold a 10-day preparation camp in Brisbane and create a dedicated performance centre inside the Commonwealth Games Village.

This year Team England will send the largest ever team to support the nation in the overseas sporting event, with over 600 athletes competing in 18 different sports.

The Commonwealth Games will be held from April 4 to April 15.
