Mitcham after London gold

MATTHEW Mitcham will dive head first into trying to become an Olympic champion again in London.

The 10m platform Beijing gold medallist has overcome injury problems to be named in the 10-strong team that also includes Loudy Wiggins.

Wiggins' selection means she is only the second Australian diver to compete at four Olympic Games.

Beijing silver medallist Melissa Wu and 2008 Olympic representative Sharleen Stratton are also heading to London.
