I had the privilege of going to Cuba in March to photograph the Cuban Olympic Diving Team. While the Cubans only have two divers who have had Olympic experience (José Guerra has been to 4 Olympics) I was able to work with the Olympic development program and got a chance to photograph future Cuban stars. Here are photos of Yenkler Aguirre and José. These guys and the others on the team are truly amazing in that their practice venue, equipment, and travel are all very make shift. Their coaches, who are paid little are committed to these athletes and themselves sacrifice considerably to make the team happen.
