EVENT: Diving: Men's 3m Springboard
Tokyo 2020 will be Anton Down-Jenkins first Olympic Games.
Down-Jenkins secured his Olympic quota spot at the Diving World Cup Olympic Qualification Event held in Japan in May 2021. The Wellingtonian, who competes in the 3m springboard, placed 10th at the event, New Zealand's best ever finish at a Diving World Cup.
Down-Jenkins also represented New Zealand at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games where he placed 8th in the 3m syncronised springboard and 14th in the individual 3m springboard.
The former Wellington High School student began diving at a ‘have a go day' at Kilbirnie Pool as a 10-year-old. He is now based at the University of North Carolina.
