Daley and Reid land second World Series silverMarch 19, 2018
Tom Daley and Grace Reid won a silver medal by the narrowest of margins at the second leg of the FINA Diving World Series in Japan.
In their final action before the Commonwealth Games in Australia next month, the duo finished on 299.25 points in the mixed 3m synchro event.
That put them 0.15 points ahead of Russia’s third-placed pair of Nikita Shleikher and Nadezhda Bazhina on the final day of the competition in Fuji.
Daley and Reid were third heading into the final dive but scored 69.75 to give them second place as the Russians could only score 68.40.
China’s Li Zheng and Wang Han took the gold medal with a score of 328.5.
The result gave Daley and Reid their second silver of the 2018 World Series, having finished second at the opening leg in Beijing.
