Laugher and Mears land Commonwealth Synchro title

1 August 2014

Jack Laugher and Chris Mears showed their class to land the 3m Synchro title on the penultimate day of diving at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The English pair, who won three medals on the FINA Diving World Series this season, scored more than 80 for three of their required dives to take gold on 431.94.

Victory meant Laugher has won a medal on all three days of diving in Edinburgh with 1m Springboard gold and 3m Springboard silver over the previous two days.

Australia's Matthew Mitcham and Grant Nel were more than 25 points back on 403.14 for silver while England's Nick Robinson-Baker and Freddie Woodward joined their teammates on the podium on 364.41 for bronze.

After only three training sessions together Tom Daley and James Denny performed an impressive final dive to finish with a total score of 399.36 to win silver in the 10m Synchro.

The pair scored 95.49 for the high tariff forward 4.5 somersaults tucked to finish 0.18 points behind Australians Domonic Bedggood and Matthew Mitcham (399.54).
