  • Visitor Information

The world's best divers from around 50 different nations are due to take part in the 18th FINA Visa Diving World Cup 2012 at the Aquatics Centre in the London 2012 Olympic Park. Although Zaha Hadid's slick Aquatics Centre was opened back in July 2011 with a dive from British athlete Tom Daley, this World Cup showdown will be the first ever sporting event to be staged in the venue and will give most competitors their first opportunity to test the waters and compete under the iconic wave-like roof ahead of the Summer Games. It will also give spectators who may have missed out on London 2012 tickets the chance to see a competitive event held in one of the Olympic Games' principal venues. This will be a key stepping stone to the Olympics: in both the men's and women's event, the 18 semi-finalists will qualify for a place at the London 2012 Games. Meanwhile, in the Synchronised events, the four highest ranked teams that have not previously qualified will achieve a place for London 2012.

 

About Aquatics Centre

The iconic wave-shaped Aquatics Centre designed by Iraq-born architect Zaha Hadid for the London 2012 Olympics reopens in 2014 for public use as a leisure faculty for local and elite swimmers, complete with creche, family-friendly changing facilities, a cafe and a new public plaza.
