British diver Jack David Laugher MBE competes for both England and Great Britain. He competes in individual springboard competitions as well as synchronized competitions with Chris Mears and later Daniel Goodfellow.

Early Life, Family, and Education

Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England, Great Britain is where Jack Laugher was born on 30 January 1995. Additionally, David and Jackie Laugher, his parents, are very proud of and supportive of their son.

Similar to Jack now, Jack was a very enthusiastic and animated child. He used to participate in a lot of sports competitions and frequently come out on top.

Consequently, a lifeguard suggested that he start diving lessons when he was seven years old. As a result, the British athlete started training hard and developed a strong passion for diving.

In a similar manner, he even took part in some activities while representing Ripon Grammar School. The gold medalist also began garnering media attention, which paved the way for his current career.

He did, however, experience many hardships after breaking his upper arm when he was fourteen. The athlete underwent surgery to have a metal plate placed in each of his arms.

The Olympian, however, never gave up on his goal and returned to training as soon as he was well.

 Age, Height, and Weight

As per the report, Laugher will turn 27 years old this year.

Regarding his height, he stands 168 cm tall and weighs 64 kg. Moreover, he has the benefit of a perfect jump thanks to a thick leg and a well-kept body.

Additionally, he follows a rigorous training schedule to maintain that physique and reduce the risk of injuries.

Diving Career

At the 2010 European Junior Championships, Jack, a springboard expert, competed in the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard events.

He unexpectedly prevailed in both contests, and he started to become well-known. At the 2010 World Junior Championships, he also won gold in the same division.

Sadly, the young diver was unable to use his charm to win a medal this time.

He was chosen for the 3-meter synchro, 1-meter, and 3-meter springboard events at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

He won gold in the 1-meter springboard and the 3-meter synchro as a result.

Additionally, he competed in the 2018 Commonwealth Games with the same determination to win three gold medals. He made sure to fulfill that promise as a result.

He won gold in all of the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard competitions as well as the 3-meter synchro.

Olympic Debut and First Olympic Medal

The British diver made his Olympic debut at the 2012 London Olympics. He also competed for the 3-meter springboard, but regrettably fell short of the semifinal round.

The discouraging defeat inspired the seventeen-year-old diver to exert more effort and bounce back. He thus entered the 2016 Rio Olympics with more experience on his side.

Jack participated in the 3-meter synchro and springboard events there.

He then put on a show for winning the gold medal with his partner Chris Mears. Not to mention that this was the first gold medal in 3m synchro diving for Great Britain.

At the 2012 London Olympics, the British diver made his Olympic debut. But he and his nation were very happy with this victory.

Tokyo 2020 Olympics

The three-time Olympian competed for Great Britain in his final Olympic competition at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Furthermore, since the pair took seventh place in 3m synchro, their loss was disappointing.

However, if he wins the 3m springboard, the springboard specialist still has a chance to win a gold for the second time in the Olympics.

Net Worth, Salary, and Endorsements
