Jack Laugher MBE breaks new ground almost every time he steps on a diving board and Birmingham 2022 was no exception.
He won two golds at a single Games for a third consecutive Commonwealth Games.
Laugher defended his 1m springboard and 3m synchro title, also winning 3m springboard bronze to take his overall Commonwealth medal tally to nine.
At Rio 2016, the 27-year-old became Britain’s first Olympic champion in diving with victory in the men’s 3m synchro alongside Chris Mears.
He added silver in the solo event to become the first Brit to win two diving Olympic medals at the same Games.
Harrogate-born Laugher had already achieved the same feat at the World Championships in Kazan a year prior, winning two bronzes.
Laugher then completed a ‘Jack-trick’ at his second Commonwealth Games, winning three golds on the Gold Coast to add to his gold and silver won at Glasgow 2014.
His third Olympic Games in Tokyo saw him complete the set with bronze in the 3m springboard.
