The U.S. Olympic Diving team is back in action starting Tuesday July 27, 2021 when the duo of 2016 Olympian Jessica Parratto and 2019 World Bronze Medalist Delaney Schnell team up to compete in the Women’s 10-Meter Tower Finals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Schnell and Parratto debuted as a pair and subsequently won the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in a heavily contest against Katrina Young and Murphy Bromberg who earned a Bronze medal in the event at the 2019 FINA World Championships.
Parratto is one of three veteran Olympians on Team USA for diving, having competed in the 2016 Rio Olympic games in both the individual 10-Meter as well as the synchronized event with Amy Cozad-Magana. This event will mark Schnell’s first Olympic Games, but not only has she been a staple on USA Diving’s both Junior and Senior High Performance Squads for years, she also became the first U.S. female individual medalist in the 10-Meter at a World Championships since Laura Wilkinson in 2005. Schnell will also compete later in the Games in the individual 10-Meter competition.
The pair will begin their five-dive list as the third pair of eight in tomorrow’s finals. Coverage will be live on CNBC at 2am EST with replays beginning on NBC at 12:15pm EST (check your local listing for diving replay).
