Rio 2016 finalist Oliver Dingley will compete for Ireland in diving at this year's Summer Olympics in Tokyo. 

He qualified for the semi-finals at the FINA World Cup in Japan and that's sufficient to secure his passage to the Games in July and August.

Dingley scored 399.75 in the 3m springboard preliminary round, finishing 15th.

Five years ago, Dingley finished eighth at the Olympics in Brazil.

He grew up in Harrogate in Yorkshire, before moving to Dublin in 2014 and declaring for Ireland.

Earlier this week, 19-year-old Tanya Watson became the first Irish female diver to qualify for the Olympic Games and will join Dingley in Tokyo.
