Week 16: Chinese divers

Follow sporting stories and learn English along the way.


At the Chinese training base

Welcome to Talking Sport!

Diving is a very skilled sport and China has some of the best divers in the world.

At the last Olympics in 2008, China topped the medals table with 11 medals in diving, including 7 gold medals.

This week we hear from BBC reporter Michael Bristow who has been to the Chinese diving training base.

Join Natalie in this week's video to hear about how often the divers train and learn the words 'criticism' and 'encouragement'.
