Tokyo 2021 qualifier Oliver Dingley has posted a score of 351.35 in the 3m Springboard semi-final at the FINA Diving World Cup in Japan.

Dingley, who finished eighth in the 3m Springboard at Rio 2016, earned qualification for his second Olympic Games on Wednesday when finishing 15th in the preliminary round of his competition. He finished 17th in the semi-final.

His efforts were Team Ireland's final dives in Tokyo for this week, with attentions now turning to the LEN European Aquatics Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

All four divers – Dingley, Clare Cryan, Ciara McGing and Tanya Watson – who competed at the FINA Diving World Cup will travel to Hungary tomorrow, where competition begins on Monday.

Swim Ireland’s National Performance director Jon Rudd said: "This has been a very successful week for Irish Diving and we are all very proud of what our athletes have achieved.

"We must give a huge deal of credit to the coaches and the practitioners for preparing these athletes to perform so well in what have been extremely challenging circumstances.

"Tanya and Oliver will clearly be delighted with the knowledge that their invitation to Tokyo is secure, whilst Ciara and Clare must now wait for a period of up to two weeks to discover whether either of them will be added to those invites.

"To have our largest ever diving team for an Olympic Games and our first ever female Olympic diver as an outcome of this competition is superb and we can all look forwards to a European Championships in a few days' time and enjoy watching this quartet compete once more."

Irish national head coach for diving Damian Ball: "It’s been a very challenging and emotional two weeks here in Japan. Words can’t describe how proud I am of this team. A big thank you to everyone who has made this story possible.

"Budapest and the European Championships awaits us next and the team can head into this full of confidence."
