Jack Laugher breaks new ground almost every time he steps on a diving board.
At Rio 2016, the 27-year-old became Britain’s first Olympic champion in diving with victory in the men’s 3m synchro alongside Chris Mears.
He added silver in the solo event to become the first Brit to win two diving Olympic medals at the same Games.
Harrogate-born Laugher had already achieved the same feat at the World Championships in Kazan a year prior, winning two bronzes.
Laugher then completed a ‘Jack-trick’ at his second Commonwealth Games, winning three golds on the Gold Coast to add to his gold and silver won at Glasgow 2014.
His third Olympic Games in Tokyo saw him complete the set with bronze in the 3m springboard and another hat-trick of titles, and three British record performances at this year’s British Championships sets him up perfectly for more success at Birmingham 2022.
