Olympic events

Every year, the FINA Diving World Series stops in three or four cities, where international diving stars go head-to-head (or is it head over heels?!). With just 5 months to go before the Tokyo Olympic Games, the Montréal competition will include 8 Olympic events including 3-metre, 10-metre, 3-metre synchro and 10-metre synchro, as well as spectacular mixed-gender synchro events.

Finals every day

While this exciting competition gives the divers an opportunity to see how they measure up against rivals from 14 countries, the program has been carefully designed to give spectators a bang for their buck.

Friday’s preliminaries take place over lunchtime. Then, starting at 5:30 p.m., the synchro diving finals get underway. On Saturday and Sunday, preliminary rounds will take place in the morning, with the finals happening in the late afternoon. For more information, check out the World Series website.

Day passes cost $25 to $35, but you can also pick up tickets for specific events. Special rates apply for kids. A good time is guaranteed for all, whether you’re looking to delve deeper into the art of diving or simply enjoy the show from the surface.

En route to Tokyo 2020

Who will we see on the 10-metre tower, 3-metre springboard and podium? Olympic medallists Jennifer Abel and Meaghan Benfeito will be there, as well as Olympians Pamela Ware, Philippe Gagné, François Imbeau-Dulac and Vincent Riendeau. They’ll be joined by Olympic hopefuls Mélissa Citrini-Beaulieu, Caeli McKay and Nathan Zsombor-Murray. These elite athletes will face champions and rising stars from around the world—the same bunch you’ll see when you tune into the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games.
