Injury denies Sylvester final chance

12th October 2012

Megan Sylvester was denied her chance at competing in the Group A Platform final after an injury sustained in the preliminaries forced her to withdraw at the World Junior Diving Championships in Adelaide.

The European Junior champion was injured on her sixth round dive in the preliminary and, despite finishing within the qualifying standard with a score of 365.60, had to pull out from the final.

British teammate Georgia Ward finished in 15th place overall with a score of 354.90.

Another European Junior champion Matty Lee was narrowly short of the qualifying mark for Group B 3m Springboard final.

Lee was off his best in the prelim but still only missed the top 12 by nine points as he finished 17th with his tally of 398.35 - a score 44 points down on his best from Graz in July when he won the European Junior title.

In the same event, Ross Haslam was just ahead of his teammate but also slightly off his best and missed the final by five points to finish 15th on 402.70.

Tomorrow will see Tom Daley compete in the Group A Platform competition and Lydia Rosenthall in the Group B 3m Springboard on the final day of competition.
