RJRGLEANER Sports Awards | Knight-Wisdom impressed by diving potential in Jamaica

Standout diver Yona Knight Wisdom believes that there is untapped potential for the sport.

The Pan American Games silver medalist engaged in a training session with members of the Immaculate High School swim team who donned their swim gears and were taught diving basics. Knight-Wisdom was surprised by the pace at which they learnt the techniques.

"They picked up really quickly in 45 minutes. So it shows that people have the quality so hopefully it can be nurtured at some point," said Knight-Wisdom, a 2019 RJRGLEANER Sportsman of the Year nominee.

Knight-Wisdom returns to the pool next week at the British National Championships before official beginning his march towards Olympic qualification at the FINA Diving Grand Prix in February.
