Thomas Ciprick produced a strong start to the 2020 season before pools closed. He competed at the season opening FINA Grand Prix in Rostock and Madrid. The highlight was a fourth-place finish in Rostock on the three-metre springboard. It was his first international final at the senior level.
The year prior, he collected two silver medals at the junior Pan Am Championships, placing second on three-metre and one-metre.
In 2017 and 2018 he struggled with injuries. Ciprick broke his wrist in September 2017 and when he returned in January, he fractured a vertebra and missed the rest of the year. He credited his teammates with keeping his spirits and confidence up while he recovered.
Ciprick was born, raised and learned to dive in Calgary. He was introduced to the sport at a summer camp at age nine and was immediately noticed by Dive Calgary. He was also involved in soccer and gymnastics, but diving was his passion.
In 2016, his father landed a job in Montreal and his entire family moved with him. He joined the Pointe-Claire Club under Yihua Li and now trains full time at the INS at Olympic Stadium with Arturo Miranda.
