Jack Laugher is the 17 year old Yorkshire diver who is widely being tipped to be the next star of British Diving. Jack trains at the City of Leeds Diving Centre and competes in the 3 metre and 1 metre Springboard and was the first British diver to hold both the Junior World and European Championship titles in 2010.
Jack is the current British Champion and has laid down a marker in his first year on the senior circuit. He competed at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi and also at the World Championships in Shanghai. Jack finished 8th at the World Championships and competed at the London 2012 Olympics, an incredible feat for a guy who is only 17. Most recently at the World Junior Diving Championships Jack outperformed the competition by a significant margin to win the 3m individual springboard and then returned a day later to claim his second gold of the event with partner Tom Daley in the 3m synchronised springboard competition.
Jack is a huge talent and the experience gained from London 2012 has been invaluable and something he can take on for the rest of his exciting career. Jack has been recognised for his achievements as a young sports person with a nomination for the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year Award 2011 and there will no doubt be many more to come.
