Interesting Facts

  • Ethan Warren's selection to the 2012 Olympic Team is a feat against the odds. Midway through 2011, Warren was rushed to hospital and was diagnosed with myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart caused by infection. He spent a week in hospital and then had 3.5 months off training and missed the 2011 World Championships but eventually was cleared to return to diving and is a serious medal contender in the 3m for London.
  • Warren showed proof of his remarkable recovery in 2012, by winning bronze at the London Test Event in the 3m springboard, with a score of more than 500 points for the first time in international competition. He also took out the Rostock Grand Prix and Montreal Grand Prix against many of his Olympic rivals and won the Australian Nomination Trials in Adelaide in 2012.
  • After beginning to dive with Beijing Olympic gold medallist Matthew Mitcham, Warren had his most successful Australian Championships in 2010 when he won a gold (10m synchronised with Mitcham), 3 silvers (1m, 10m and 3m synchronised with Mitcham) and a bronze (3m).
  • Warren qualified for four events at the 2010 Commonwealth Games - the 3m and 10m individual and synchronised. He continued his strong partnership with Mitcham in both synchronised events, claimng two silver medals. Warren also claimed 5th in the 10m and 8th in the 3m individual events.
  • Warren made the switch from gymnastics at age 14 after competing at national level and then in 2007 claimed the Australian junior diving titles in the 1m, 3m and 10m individual events to grab the attention of the Australian diving community. He backed up his exceptional performances by taking out the 2008 Australian junior titles in the 3m and 10m, and gained selection on the national development squad that went to the FINA Rome Grand Prix event that year.
