Blagg and Gallantree scoop silver in Beijing

15th March 2013

Alicia Blagg and Rebecca Gallantree secured silver in the women’s 3m Synchro at the first leg of the FINA/Midea Diving World Series.

Competing in the 2008 Beijing Olympic venue, the Water Cube, the pair executed their dives with confidence and precision as they beat Ukraine's Olena Fedorova and Anna Pysmenska (300.90) into third place.

British champions Blagg and Gallantree scored a total of 305.79 to win their silver medal with China's Shi Tingmao and Wu Minxia taking gold on home soil with 336.60 points.

In winning silver, the City of Leeds pair became Great Britain's first female springboard medallists in World Series history.

It was also Blagg and Gallantree's top international result to date, having previously won Grand Prix silver in Fort Lauderdale two years ago.

Nick Robinson-Baker and Chris Mears finished fifth in the men’s 3m Synchro with a score of 375.57 while Gallantree and Jenny Cowen scored 282.60 to finish sixth in the 10m Synchro.
