Former elite New Zealand diver Simon Latimer is heading to London for the Olympics, as a judge. The 30-year-old became a FINA judge in 2008, and has steadily risen through the ranks, judging the Youth Olympics and New Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010. He is also a national selector and a member of the Diving New Zealand Development Committee.
Latimer will be the youngest judge on the Olympic panel this year. In February Latimer went to London for the test event and said that the diving facility is great, as was the quality of diving.
