A virtual International Swimming Federation (FINA) Diving Grand Prix event is scheduled to begin tomorrow.

Diving Canada is hosting the virtual event, with the organisation coordinating the competition and providing the head referee.

Equipment has been sent to the competing nations, with a Dejero transmitter provided to help with the filming of the event.

The transmitter will be connected to the pool’s hard-wired internet connection and will provide transmission rates of less than one second.

The transmission will be sent to Integrated Sports’ video-production system in Canada, with the video then sent to a website which will allow judges to watch and score athletes in real time.

Diving Canada and FINA said eight remote locations were permitted to participate in the four-day event.

Each individual event will feature a preliminary session, which will allow up to four divers per nation to compete.

The top eight athletes will advance to the final, where countries will be limited to three divers.

Each synchronised event will be a straight final with one team featuring per nation.
