USA Diving has announced the 32 divers selected to the AT&T High Performance Squad for 2015.
The AT&T High Performance Squad includes the divers who most exhibit the potential, skill and determination to become 2016 Olympic Team members. The squad includes members of the 2014 FINA World Cup team and others who have been identified as top hopefuls leading up to the 2016 Games. Pending U.S. qualification, a maximum of 16 divers will compete for Team USA at the 2016 Olympic Games.
The squad has been proven to be a pipeline to the Olympics as all 11 members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team for diving were members of the group in the years leading up to London.
AT&T, the exclusive telecommunications partner for USA Diving, continues its support of USA Diving as the official sponsor of the AT&T High Performance Squad. AT&T has been a proud partner of USA Diving since 2007, and will continue its relationship through the 2016 Olympic Games.
“We are grateful for the continued support of our long-term sponsor AT&T,” said USA Diving President and CEO Linda Paul. “AT&T’s support enables USA Diving to provide our athletes with valuable opportunities as we prepare for Rio and beyond.”
A review of the AT&T High Performance Squad is conducted periodically, and divers may be removed or added from the squad following such evaluations. -
