FINA Diving World Cup
In 2014, the international diving elite will gather for the 19th edition of the FINA Diving World Cup, taking place from July 15-20 in Shanghai (CHN).
The first edition of the World Cup was held in 1979 with only two events on the programme for both men and women: 3m springboard and 10m platform. Since 2000, the event is held every 4 years and the diving programme was upgraded to include the following events: 1m springboard, 3m springboard individual and synchro, 10m platform individual and synchro.
Changzhou, 2010: US pair wins inaugural "Team Event"
As an initiative event at the 2010 FINA Diving World Cup, the American pair claimed the first ever team victory on the opening day (June 1, 2010) in Changzhou, China. Instead of having a men's and women's 1m springboard event (as it was the case in the last FINA Diving World Cup in Beijing, 2008), the team event in Changzhou featured one male and one female diver performing six dives on the 3m springboard and 10m platform.
David Boudia and Haley Ishimatsu from the United States beat the other 11 competing pairs to take the gold with a total of 455.35 points. Reflecting on the results, Boudia expressed his satisfaction: "I performed very well today."
