More about High Diving Insurance
High diving originated as a recreational sport, with locals diving off of cliffs or high platforms. It soon picked up speed and interest and was introduced in its competitive nature in the late 19th century. It was soon introduced into the Olympics at the 1908 event in London and the popularity of the sport, both as a recreational pastime and eventing sport has been on the increase since. The height that the divers jump from can provide them with speeds of up to 60 mph, making the impact forceful when hitting the surface of the water. High diving goes hand in hand with high risks of injuries and accidents occurring. Ensuring that you have sufficient cover in place to protect yourself should anything happen is highly advised.
