Silver for Daley in Moscow
14th April 2012
Tom Daley had added more silver wear to his collection, finishing second in the 10m platform event at the FINA/Midea Diving World Series in Moscow.
Commonwealth champion Daley, who already has two silver medals from the events in Dubai and Beijing, was looking to capitalise on the absence of World Champion Qui Bo but was beaten to the Gold by Yue Lin of China who finished with 546.25 points.
Daley was second with 520.95 narrowly beating David Boudia of USA into third with 518.40. His 10m Synchro partner Peter Waterfield scored a total of 405.15 to finish further down the table.
The pairing had a frustrating 10m Synchro competition in Friday’s final finishing in fifth place with 429.39 points.
In the women's event Sarah Barrow and Tonia Couch placed sixth in the 10m synchronised dive with a total points score of 296.76.
Chris Mears and Nick Robinson-Baker were fifth in the 3m Synchro finals scoring 391.53 and Jack Laugher just missed out on the final of the individual 3m event, finishing with a total of 425.95.
