On the second day of the Diving World Cup, just one medal event, the 3m Synchro Springboard. Again gold for the Chinese, but it was closely contested as the British pair actually came first in the (useless) prelim round.

 

Men 3m Synchro Springboard:

Gold: :CHN CAO Yuan/XIE Siyi

Silver::GBR LAUGHER Jack/MEARS Chris

Bronze::MEX  OCAMPO MARROQUIN Jahir/PACHECO MARRUFO Rommel

The other event contested was Women's 10m prelims, which had an awful level as, with the exception of the top 6 qualifiers) went for regular to plain bad in their executions. So as long as this continues, it will be hard to beat the Chinese in this event.

Today one final, considering Olympic events only, was disputed: the Men's 10m Synchronized Platform. Chinese were far beyond reach, but the drama came in the final dive, when one of the Mexican divers completely failed his dive and cost him a place in the podium.

 

Men 10m Synchro Platform:

Gold: :CHN CHEN Aisen/YANG Hao

Silver: :RUS  BELEVTSEV Aleksandr/SHLEIKHER Nikita

Bronze: :AUS BEDGGOOD Domonic/STACEY Declan

 

Also qualified to 2019 WDS: :MEX  :USA  :GBR

 

Also contested were the 3m Women Springboard, in which Jennifer Abel was leading until the last dive when she crumbled (as usual in her :wall:) and let the Chinese girl take first two places; besides those three, everyone had a mediocre competition, but it seems everyone is really trying to save their best for the finals.
