Brittany O'Brien will make her Olympic debut in the women's 10m platform in Rio.
The 18-year-old Sydneysider finished second overall in the 10m platform at the 2016 National Championships, behind Olympic medallist Melissa Wu.
O'Brien was selected for the Games after London 2012 silver medallist Brittany Broben was forced to withdraw due to a shoulder injury.
She trains at New South Wales Institute of Sport and is a newcomer to the senior ranks. She finished 12th at the 2014 World Junior Championships in the 10m platform.
O’Brien went on to finish fourth at both the 2015 Grand Prix in Kuala Lumpur (10m platform synchronised) and the 2016 Grand Prix in San Juan, Puerto Rico (10m platform individual).
