KUALA LUMPUR: A shake-up of the national diving team set-up will take place next year with three new coaches to be brought in to lower the coach-to-athlete ratio.

Changes need to be made to boost the national diving programme at the elite and back-up levels, with the ultimate goal to ensure the sport can be a medal contributor at the Olympics again after missing out in Tokyo two years ago.
