ICE AIDS RECOVERY AT DIVE LONDON AQUATICS CLUB

Jane arrived at Dive London in 2014, having coached diving teams around the world. Bringing together all her experience into one place, she knew how vital the recovery phase is for our divers. Part of the recovery is eliminating muscle soreness – keeping the muscles cold as to refrain the swelling. This is especially beneficial from those engaging in the “10 meters”. Certainly with name brands like Tom Daley, Grace Reid, and Robert Birch – as well the up and coming juniors, Dive London are going to use ice forever.

“We fill small bags with ice, and use cling film to hold it tightly in place, generating a cold compression on the triceps and legs in particular. Left for 15-20 minutes, the ice really does deliver significant benefits to our team”.

Before the Hoshizaki ice machine was installed Jane and her team had to pre-order ice. Now they have it on demand, which is great for training as well as competitions and events.

One of the most essential elements to recovery for a professional diver is ice
