Calgary will host the Canada Cup, a stop on the FINA Diving Grand Prix circuit, in 2018 and 2019.

Diving Canada announced Tuesday that the 2018 event will take place May 10-13 at the Repsol Sport Centre.

The event was held in Gatineau, Que., from 2013 to 2017.

Three time Olympic medallist Meaghan Benfeito of Montreal and synchro partner Caeli McKay of Calgary were among the divers on hand at Tuesday's announcement.

"We can't wait to show off the power, the grace and the acrobatics of our sport in this showcase event," Benfeito said. "Competing alongside my new 10m synchro partner Caeli McKay in her hometown is going to be very special."
