(Montreal) The best athletes in the world will be in action this weekend in Montreal during the second stop of the all-new Diving World Cup circuit.

More than 120 divers from more than 20 countries will compete in nine distinct disciplines. This international diving competition, the first to take place in the city since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, will set the stage for another major event.

All divers will come together July 14-30 in Fukuoka, Japan for the World Diving Championships. They will then face off in the World Cup Finals which will take place in Berlin, Germany from August 4-6.

The Canadian team will be made up of 10 athletes, including three Quebecers — Mia Vallée, from Beaconsfield, Pamela Ware, from Greenfield Park, and Nathan Zsombor-Murray, from Pointe-Claire.

They also participated in a training session in front of members of the media on Wednesday morning, before taking part in a press scrum by the pool.

During the last passage of the best divers on the planet in 2020, Canada had dominated the medal table with six gold discs, and two bronze. China, a sinking power, was conspicuous by its absence, however — for an obvious reason.

The events will take place from Friday to Sunday at the sports center of the Olympic Park, this time in the presence of China.
