Excellent! I've been missing some world-class diving this year.

Diving World Cup is a huge event, usually held for the countries who haven't already qualified for the Olympics. It has been the Trial event pre-Olympics since 2012 to validate everything from the pool, judging, video, audio, scoring all work correctly for each competition.

Anyone attending who hasn't already been vaccinated, will need to get a 1-shot vaccine in the next week to be as safe as possible. I worry about the teams from mid-tier diving countries being able to accomplish that - so those in Latin America who are sometimes good enough to make the finals, even if their programs aren't likely to earn any medals.

The BBC had reported FINA was concerned organizers of the Diving World Cup had not done enough to protect athletes from COVID-19.

And I am seriously concerned that the organizers of the Tokyo Olympics are not doing enough to protect its staff and spectators from COVID-19.
