Ian Matos is a 27 year old professional diver who competed in the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil and has been diving since he was 11 years old. Get to know him a little better in the interview below.
You had a competition today. How did it go?
My competition today was not what I was expecting, my partner was not in a good day and did a terrible mistake in our second dive, it destabilized him. After this mistake we couldn’t compete against the others.
Oh, I’m sorry, Ian! That sucks! Do you want to compete in another Olympics?
For sure, I will try Tokyo too.
How long have you been diving? What do you like about it?
I am 27 and I have been diving since I was 11 years old. The best thing about diving is that we aways have to improve, we chase perfection and have to work really hard everyday.
