All nations videoed their divers during a two-day period. The video footage was then sent to a panel of International judges, who scored each of the dives. The videos were then tagged and edited together to create one full video that would look like a competition.

Clare Cryan, Ireland, trains at City of Sheffield Diving Club in England and the National Centre in Dublin. Finished 5th place on a score of 233.25. The event winner was Kiarra Milligan from Australia.

Damian Ball, National Diving Head Coach, said: "We are really happy to get our first taste of competition diving in nine months.
"This was a competition format that was new to all of us and we are very grateful to the Netherlands for all the work that went in to setting up and coordinating the event.
"For this competition, I never set any performance outcomes, the only objective was to replicate a pressure situation in a training environment."
