FINA/NVC Diving World Series in London April 25 to 27 2014

The world’s diving elite will be assembled in London from April 25 to 27 2014. the diving event will feature the top ranked divers in the world and obviously the top candies to watch. High time to get your tickets to the Aquatics Centre in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. That London is hosting the high class event in a sport far from mainstream is due to the deep pockets of the lottery fund. Buy your lottery tickets, guys, you know what you get for it.

The Diving World Series is the first world class sporting event staged at the London Aquatics Centre since the Olympic Games in London 2012. It forms part of the world series hosted this year by Beijing (CHN) from March 14 to 16, Dubai (UAE) from March 20 to 22, London (GBR) from April 25 to 27, Moscow (RUS) from May 2 to 4, Windsor (CAN) from May 30 to June 1, and Monterrey (MEX) from June 6 to 8.

The event is part of the Olympics Heritage scheme. that means that it is rather wildly hailed as proof that the heritage scheme works and nincompoops like the Mayor of Little Brain Boris Johnson feel called on to comment on it. In fact, it is one of about two such events that were salvaged from the wreckage called London 2012 which was a total catastrophe for business and tourism alike.

London 2012 cost billions in tax payers' money to get, billions from the same source to run, and billions in sales and revenue and consequently taxes while it lumbered along and crippled the capital. All costs to be footed by the tax payer, as usual, and never by the mafia racket that runs this country called Tory and Labour. As we already paid three times for the fun, we can at least go and enjoy the show; and a show with fit guys in working dress all before the watershed.

Victor Minibaev

Only the highest ranked divers are invited to take part and the standard of diving is accordingly high. Unlike 'free for all' events like the Olympic Games, World and European Championships, and the Commonwealth Games, divers have to bring their best dives from the start or face early elimination.

Francesco Dell'Uomo

Among many others, we may expect the British diving boys Jack Laugher, Tom Daley, Chris Mears, Matthew Lee, and Daniel Goodfellow to be backed up by the likes of David Boudia, German Sanchez, Ivan Garcia, Victor Minibaev, Illya Kvasha, Francesco Dell-Uomo, and Maicol Verzotto.
