Divers show potential in Budapest

Nick Robinson-Baker (Sheffield) and Chris Mears (Southampton) made their international debut in Budapest and gave a solid account with a fifth place finish in the Men’s 3m Synchro final.

 The pair put together an impressive dive list to score 398.37 despite the fact they have only trained together as a new pairing for the past six weeks. Gold went to Ukraine in 431.67, Germany took the silver in 427.95 and Russia the bronze in 410.43.
 
“We've only been diving together for the past six weeks and at our first international event that is a great result,” said Robinson-Baker.
 
“Chris dived superbly and as the younger member of the team actually carried me in places as I didn't dive as well as I could.
 
“We managed a couple of great scores throughout the rounds and our performance today shows the potential we have as a team.””
 
For Mears, in his senior international debut, it was perfect preparation for the World Junior Championships next month.
 
“I was bit nervous at the start but Nick settled me down and we dived well as a pair. Training has been going really well and I can look towards the World Juniors and the Commonwealth Games now.”
 
Team-mate Monique Gladding went in the Women’s 10m Platform and improved from the preliminary where she finished ninth to take seventh spot in the final with a score of 311.95.
