DIVING: JACK LAUGHER AND CHRIS MEARS RETURNS TO COMPETE AT BUDAPEST

Britian pair of Jack Laugher and Chris Mears have returned to compete at the World Championship inĀ Budapest that starts on Friday.

The Olympic champions who won gold at the sychronised 3m springboard at Rio 2016 have come back after considering retirement when they won the Olympics to participate in the World Championships.

The pair whose best results at the World Championships was a third place finish at Kazan in 2015 are part of the British diving squad that have gone to Budapest.

“It would be sensational and really amazing to add to the titles we already have”, says Laugher.

Laugher, 22 and Mears, 24 have indicated that they are focusing on claiming more honours. They said;

“It was an open secret that after I’d done my event [in Rio] I was going to retire,” said Mears.

“But I came back into training to see how it felt and I’m still passionate about diving and there are still things I want to achieve”, Mears continued.

Laugher also added; “I always said that if I was to win the Olympic Games, I would retire instantly so I could quit at the best level. “Having to compete in the individual event stopped that, but also I have that spark again.”
