Diving into the history books!

 

Always a major supporter of talent from his home country, Levi is excited to be sponsoring a young Jamaican diver who’s hoping to represent the Caribbean island at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

 

Leeds-based 18 year old Yona Knight-Wisdom is Jamaica’s first ever male diver and is currently training hard at John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds in the hope that the next three years will provide plenty of opportunity for international achievement.

 

Yona says “It’s not going to be easy by any stretch of the imagination, but my trainers believe in me as much as I believe in myself, and with Levi’s support I’m faced with a chance of achieving that dream.”

 

As a talented young gymnast, Yona’s potential was spotted in 2004 by his local diving club during a visit to his school and he hasn’t turned back.

 

We’ll keep you updated on Yona’s progress as he aims for Rio 2016.
