Mexican divers training in China for Olympics
09:12, August 07, 2008

Mexican divers trained on Wednesday at the "Water Cube" towards their participation in the 29th Olympic Games in Beijing.

Rommel Pacheco started his training in the 10m platform and said he is ready for the Games after an injury that kept him inactive for more than six months.

Pacheco won a bronze medal in the diving World Series that took place late May in Nanjing, Southeast China.

Experts say the Mexican team has high possibilities of winning two medals.

Divers Paola Espinoza and Tatiana Ortiz also practiced their synchronized jump from the 10m platform.

Trainer Ma Jin led the training day for Espinoza, Ortiz, Pacheco and German Sanchez, while veteran Jorge Rueda trained Jashia Luna and Yahel Castillo.

Yahel Castillo practiced a 3.9 difficulty degree jump hoping to reach the final for he has trained hard since the World Cup that was held in February.

Director of Sports and Physical Culture's National Commission of Mexico, Carlos Hermosillo Goyturtua, toured the sporting facilities in Beijing and visited the Mexican swimming and boxing teams.
