Aged nine, Jordan Houlden refused to jump in the water on the first day of a diving taster camp in Sheffield as he was unable to swim.
He is now one of England’s brightest rising stars in the sport and will make his Commonwealth debut on the back of a landmark victory.
In June, Houlden beat a global field including team-mate Dan Goodfellow to win 3m springboard gold at the FINA Grand Prix in Calgary.
