Competition is Friday through Sunday in the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre.

Dorman and Hixon, who combined to win a silver medal in men’s 3-meter synchro in Rio at only their second competition together, will team up in the same event in Windsor. They won a U.S. title in the event last week in Atlanta.

Parratto, a 2016 Olympian, will combine with 14-year-old Tarrin Gilliland in the women’s synchronized 10-meter. They won a national title in the event last week.

The finals in both men’s 3-meter and women’s 10-meter synchro are Friday.

Hixon and Parratto will also dive in the individual competition. Hixon is in the men’s 3-meter and Parratto in the women’s 10-meter. Both of the competitions are Saturday.
