19 Rio Olympic Medalists Will Dive In Windsor This Weekend
19 medalists from the Rio Olympics are taking a dive in Windsor this weekend.
73 divers from 13 countries are participating in the 2017 FINA Diving World Series at the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre April 21-23.
This is the fourth and final year the diving series is in Windsor.
Team Canada's Meaghan Benfeito says post Olympics means changes.
"There have been a lot of changes, I have a new synchronized partner, I did synchronized diving for 12 years with the same person, so it is hard to get used to but we are doing really good and we are a medal potential," says Benfeito.

Team Great Britain diver Tom Daley says it is important to see the stands full during the competition.
"The atmosphere in the World Series in Canada is always incredible. The crowd really gets behind all the divers and it really raises the level of competition."

Tickets range from $10 to $25.
