Robert Newberry


Inducted in 2015

Robert, Australia’s most decorated male diver, represented Australia for over 11 years. During this time he became the first diver in the world to complete a 4.5 somersault on the 3m and 10m boards, and perform the highest degree of difficulty list of dives by any diver in the world.

The sign of his achievements came at the 2000 Olympic Games when he won a Bronze Medal, the first medal by an Australian male in 76 years.

He went on to become a gold medallist at the Commonwealth Games and FINA World Championships. Robert was noted for his versatility, competing internationally on all individual and synchronised boards.
