2019 Summer Universiade

Diving

The Event

The diving competition at the 2019 Summer Universiade will take place on the 2-8 July at the Mostra d’Oltremare in Napoli. Diving has been a compulsory sport within the Summer Universiade and made its debut at the event at Sofia 1961. The UniRoos have a proud history in diving having previously won 7 medals (1 gold) and included world championship medallists, Sam Mills, Esther Qin and Briony Cole. Six UniRoos have been selected to continue this strong tradition in diving at Napoli 2019.
