Power, patience and elegance

Dear athletes,

A very warm welcome to the 65th International Divers Day and the 26th FINA Diving Grand Prix in the hanseatic and university city of Rostock. We are glad to welcome some of the world’s best divers here in our city.

The first International Divers Day took place in 1956 with divers from seven nations. Many Olympic medallists, world champions and vice world champions have visited and written sporting history here since. However, that is only one of the reasons why the event is an important highlight in Rostock’s sporting calendar.

Rostock is a city of sports. Over 50.000 people are involved in one of over 200 sports clubs. Due to the city’s location by the sea, water sports are especially popular with viewers but big competitions and events like the International Diving Day are not just a showdown to determine the best of the best. They are also a great way to promote a sport like diving.

Diving is all about power and patience, but it is also a hugely elegant sport. Since 1904, diving is an Olympic discipline. In Rostock, however, it is also an acclaimed recreational sport.

I want to take this opportunity, to thank all athletes, volunteers and supporters for their commitment to the event and to all athletes, the best of luck for your competitions.

Claus Ruhe Madsen

Lord Mayor of the hanseatic and university city of Rostock
