Inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 1988, Ron O'Brien coached two-time Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis and many others during his extensive reign as the U.S. Olympic team's head diving coach. Now, in the latest edition of Springboard & Platform Diving , the best-known diving coach in the United States shares new information and training plans never before published. Along with a wealth of technical instruction, Springboard & Platform Diving gives you the fundamentals of the sport. O'Brien shows you how to plan for the training year and adapt the six-week peaking-for-competition program he used for training champion athletes.

From solid fundamentals to fine-tuned movements that add aesthetic appeal for judges, O'Brien describes each type of dive in detail. He augments his instruction with numerous sequential illustrations that highlight the best and most current technical elements of each dive. A special boardwork checklist will help coaches and divers pinpoint deficient skills.
