Former US national 10m champion David Colturi became the youngest diver to appear in a full World Series in 2012 following successful qualification from Australia and went from strength to strength in his debut season.

"Competing in the World Series is the culmination of a life committed to training and a love for the sport of diving. Qualifying for the 2012 tour is a dream come true and a start to a new chapter in my diving career. I’m so new to the sport still. I’ve been training my ass off and I’m going to try and keep getting better."

Having first competed as a wildcard in Boston in 2011, and showing a glimpse of his talent, David achieved his first World Series podium a year later at his home event and followed it up with a second third-placed finish in Oman to round off a very impressive first full season, and suggesting that he will be one to watch in 2013.

QUOTE
"Being in Boston with my family was super cool and to get my first podium it couldn’t have gone any better. I’m always going to have great memories of Boston."
