USA Diving is pleased to announce it has reached an agreement with San Francisco-based Topcoder as its newest sponsor.

Topcoder is currently working with USA Diving and the United States Olympic Committee in the development of an application for use with Apple iPads for coaches and athletes. The new app is currently in testing with some of USA Diving’s national team coaches and divers and is expected to be in full use prior to this year’s Olympic Games. 

“We could not be more excited and proud to partner with a company with the resources and reputation of Topcoder,” said Linda Paul, President & CEO of USA Diving. “Their expertise will surely benefit our coaches and athletes in their quest for Olympic success.”

With the new app, coaches and athletes will be able to log and track an athlete’s progress through training and competition and chart areas of success or areas that need more work. The app will provide coaches and athletes better insight into what types of training programs provide the best results.

"We are very excited to be partnering with Topcoder and this new technology for our coaches and athletes as we strive to become world class in all areas of the sport,” said Steve Foley, USA Diving High Performance Director. “This innovative app could be the advantage our coaches and athletes need to earn that place on the podium at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games."

"Partnering with USA Diving has been an incredible experience for Topcoder and our global community of experts," said Mike Epner, President of Topcoder. "We're thrilled to support the coaches and athletes of USA Diving by providing access to the design and technical expertise they needed to bring their app idea to life. For Topcoder Community members, it was an opportunity to work on an exciting project in the rapidly expanding field of sports technology."
