Biography:

Kassidy is the daughter of Kevin and Laura Cook. She has five siblings: Kevin, Kara, Kelsey, Kylie and Kendall. Kassidy started diving at the age of three, and her sister, Kara, was a diver at Purdue University. Kassidy enjoys sports of all kinds and trains five hours a day, six days a week. Kassidy narrowly missed making the 2012 Olympic team by .42 points and then was away from competition for two years while recovering from shoulder and knee surgeries.

Kassidy always gets her nails done before a competition. During competition, she likes to dance, listen to music (Drake, Major Lazer and Taylor Swift are among her favorites), color and stretch between dives. Her favorite dive is 305B, and her favorite diver is Wu Minxia. She says the hardest part about training is weight lifting and the mental training having to do with injuries.

She says is extremely good at Games of Thrones, Star Wars and Harry Potter trivia (she also claims she can recite any of the Harry Potter spells). She enjoys cooking and reading.
