Development News

11 Diving Judges (six locals and five coming from Cuba, France, Japan and the USA) took part in a school for the FINA Judges Certification Course (Advanced) in Montreal, Canada, from April 27-29, 2011.

FINA Technical Diving Committee Members Steve McFarland (USA) and Anke Piper (Germany) were on-hand to share their expertise with the participants. In addition to the theory sessions, the class was given the opportunity to test their skills at an international diving competition, the third leg of the FINA Diving Grand Prix taking place in Montreal on the same week-end. As a result, the participants were assessed by both experts during the competition, also attending the debriefing for the Judges Panels.
