Jack Laugher MBE


With 13 gold, 8 silver and 6 bronze medals across the major championships, Jack is the most decorated British diver of all time and multiple Olympian.

He and partner Chris Mears became Britain's first diving Olympic champions by winning a gold medal in the men's synchronised 3m springboard event at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. A week later, Jack won a silver in the men's individual 3m springboard at the same Games, becoming the first British diver to win multiple Olympic diving medals at the same Games.

Jack was a double Commonwealth Games champion for England at the 2014 games in Glasgow, a double champion again at the 2022 Games in Birmingham (in 1m springboard and 3m synchro on both occasions) and a triple champion (1m springboard, 3m springboard and 3m synchro) in the 2018 Games at the Gold Coast. He was the first British diver to win two medals at the same World Championships (in 2015).

He was born on 30th January 1995 in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and attended Ripon Grammar School.

Jack became interested in diving at age 7 during a family visit to Harrogate Hydro Swimming Pool and a lifeguard advised him to go for diving lessons. He began to learn diving at the Harrogate and District Diving Club at the Hydro and now trains at the John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds.

He has a passion for dogs and the outdoors and lives with his partner and fellow Team GB diver, Lois Toulson.
