South Africa's Diving Divas

South Africa's Diving Divas

Personal message

These young divers are the future of South African Diving. They have been selected to represent their country at the International Diving Youth meet in Dresden, Germany and at the Bergen Open.

The team includes 4 young divers that represented South Africa last year at the International Diving Youth meet and later that year at the FINA Diving World Junior Championships in Kiev Ukraine. As junior divers all trips to date have been self-funded, which has added considerable strain on their ability to continue to compete internationally.

Without this experience they are considerably disadvantaged at International meets with their lack of experience on an international stage.

The divers are raising funds for flights and accommodation for these events.

Divers Selected for the National Team to Dresden International Youth Meet (25-28 April 2019) and Bergen Open (2-5 May 2019):

Olivia Van Vollenhoven:
(World Juniors 2016 Kazan Russia, Dresden International Youth Meet 2018, World Juniors 2018 Kiev Ukraine)
