Bronze for Daley and Goodfellow in China

Tom Daley and Daniel Goodfellow picked up a medal in their preparation for the Commonwealth Games at the FINA Diving World Series in China.

They finished third on the opening day of the competition, in Beijing, to take bronze in the 10m synchronised platform after scoring 400.68 points.

Daley, 23, and 21-year-old Goodfellow, who won the Olympic bronze medal at the 2016 Games in Rio, were second going into their final dive, which was the most difficult in their programme.

They could only score 62.16 for the forward 4.5 somersault in tuck position which allowed the Ukranian pair of Oleksandr Gorshkovozov and Maksym Dolgov, who finished on 417.93 points, to take the silver medal.

China’s Chen Aisen and Yang Hao took the gold medal on 484.29 points.

Duo back in action

Both Daley and Goodfellow are in action on Saturday for the second day of the event.

Daley teams up with Grace Reid in the mixed 3m synchronised competition, while Goodfellow is in semi-final action in the men’s 3m springboard.

Reid also competes individually in the women’s 3m springboard final.

On Sunday, Matty Lee and Lois Toulson are in the final of the mixed 10m synchronised event, while Lee and Daley are taking part in the semi-finals of the Men’s 10m platform.

Toulson will also be looking to reach the final of the women’s 10m platform event.

Daley, Goodfellow, Lee and Toulson are all part of the Team England diving squad heading to the Gold Coast, Australia, for the Commonwealth Games next month.

The second round of the FINA Diving World Series takes place in Fuji, Japan, between 15 and 17 March, with the final two rounds taking place in Montreal, Canada, and Kazan, Russia, on April 27-29 and May 4-6 respectively.
