Diving with Matt Dixon

Elite-level diving requires the strength and agility of a gymnast, the fearlessness of a skydiver and strong swimming skills as well. When everything comes together, however, it’s one of the most graceful, yet spectacular sports to watch there is.

To discover more about the skills required to compete in elite diving competitions, we caught up with one of our Sporting Champions, Matt Dixon – 2017 Junior European Champion and 2018 Commonwealth Games Silver Medallist. Matt took us through what he loves most about the sport, what any prospective diver needs to have in their locker and what his rigorous training regime entails.
