Caeli McKay leads young Canadian diving team into Paris Olympics

After just missing out on a medal at the Tokyo Games in 2021, Caeli McKay will look to stand on the Olympic podium for the first time when she leads a young Canadian diving team this summer in Paris.

The 24-year-old from Calgary was among five athletes named to the team Wednesday by Diving Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee.

McKay and partner Meaghan Benfeito finished fourth in the 10-metre synchro event in Tokyo.

It was a comeback performance from McKay, who sustained a serious ankle injury at the Canadian Olympic trials shortly before the games.

Margo Erlam, Kate Miller, Rylan Wiens and Nathan Zsombor-Murray join McKay on the Olympic squad.

The Canadian team is in a transition phase, with longtime team members Benfeiro and Jennifer Abel retiring after the Tokyo Games.
