Matty Lee is one of the country's most promising divers having won medals at European Junior and senior World Championship levels.

In 2019 Lee's 10m synchro pairing with Tom Daley showed promise with three medals in FINA World Diving Series, including a gold in London, before taking Bronze at the World Championships in Gwangju.

Lee struggled with injury in the early part of 2018, however still managed to compete at his first Commonwealth Games for England in the 10m Platform event.

A silver medal rounded off Lee's 2018 season, where he finished second alongside Lois Toulson in the Mixed 10m Synchro event at the inaugural combined sports European Championships.

Matty qualified for his second World Championships at the British Diving Championships in Edinburgh by winning the 10m Platform. He began his competition in Budapest with silver in the 10m Mixed Synchro with Lois Toulson and impressed in the individual and he reached the final. 

At only 17 years old, Lee participated in his first World Championships in Kazan in 2015. He showed potential for the future and great maturity as he finished in 18th place in the 10m Platform event and 9th in the 10m Synchro event alongside James Denny.

He won his first senior international medals in 2014, combining with Daniel Goodfellow for 10m Synchro bronze at the opening two legs of the FINA Diving World Series

Lee secured his first senior individual domestic medals in 2014, winning 10m Platform bronze at both the season-opening National Cup and the British Gas Diving Championships in Sheffield.

He won medals in all three Group B individual events at his second European Junior Championships, defending his 3m title and adding Platform silver and 1m Springboard bronze.

Competing at his first European Junior Diving Championships, he landed 3m Springboard gold in the Group B age group then travelled to the World Junior Championships later in the season, securing a top result of seventh in the Group B Platform.

Lee showed his immense talent with some stand-out performances on the junior international stage in 2012.
