Richard "Dick" Eve put diving on the map for Australia, by winning gold at the 1924 Paris Olympic Games.

Dick competed in the High Plain Dive and blitz the competition in the final round of dives; achieving perfect scores from all judges.

Dick's monumental achievement was unmatched by any Australian diver; until 80 years later when Chantelle Newbery achieved the same spectacular success in the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, winning gold in the 10m Platform.


World class diver, Jenny Donnet, represented Australia at four Olympic Games;  the only Australian diver, to date, to be a four time Olympian!
Jenny's Olympic debut was in 1980 at the Moscow Olympic Games. She then continued to represent Australia in the 1984 Los Angeles Games, the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games and the 1992 Barcelona Games, where she lead the entire Australian Olympic team, as the flag bearer, during the opening ceremony.  

In 1982, Jenny accomplished a dream, when she became Commonwealth Games 3m springboard champion. Jenny was also crowned 3m champion at the 1990 Commonwealth Games.

Jenny's mother, Barbara MacAuley, achieved  the same title for the 10m platform event, 28 years earlier in 1954.


It took 80 years, and Chantelle Newbery was the one to pull it off!  Now Australia has two Olympic gold medalists.

An achievement that will go down inthe history books.


The 2004 Athens Olympic Games was amazing for Australian diving success and Mathew Helm was amongst the best of them.

Mathew won the silver medal, in what was a magnificant nail biting competition. The result brought a tear to everyone watching, including Mathew.

An Olympic moment to remember!


In 2003 Loudy Tourky achieved something that no other diver has ever managed to achieve.

She won the 10m individual platform and the 10m synchronised platform events  in three consecutive Grand Prix meets - the CAN-AM-MEX Grand Prix.
Loudy represented Australia at four Olympic Games (Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, London 2012), and won two bronze medals.  Loudy also competed at multiple Commonwealth Games and won three gold medals.
