Daley and Lee combine for World Series bronze in Kazan

Great Britain pair Tom Daley and Matty Lee continued their success in the FINA/CNSG Diving World Series, winning a bronze medal in the men’s 10m synchronised event in Kazan.

Daley and Lee headed into the penultimate leg of the World Series full of confidence, after winning silver in Montreal last month.

They never dropped out of the podium positions on the opening day in Russia, with a fifth dive of 81.60 points helping them to secure Great Britain’s first medal of the meet with 395.82 points.

Chinese duo Hao Yang and Junjie Lian produced a dominant display to win gold with 444.18 points.

Daley has enjoyed plenty of success in the World Series this year, taking his overall medal tally to six, which includes the gold he won in the 10m platform last month.

The world champion will look to defend his individual title on Sunday.

Eden Cheng and Lois Toulson narrowly missed out on a medal in the women’s 10m synchronised event.

They finished fourth for the second consecutive time in the World Series, less than eight points shy of the third-placed Russian pair.

Toulson will have another shot at a medal when she competes in the women’s 10m platform on Saturday.

Jack laugher and Daniel Goodfellow led for much of the way in the men’s 3m synchronised event, but finished fifth in a competitive field.

The British duo were atop the rankings after their fourth dive, but could only add 53.82 points with their next attempt as they slipped down the leaderboard.

Olympic champion Laugher and Commonwealth champion Goodfellow closed out with 385.62 points, almost 15 points behind the third-placed Mexican pair.

There were less than four points between the Ukrainian champions and Canada’s fourth-placed pairing.

Katherine Torrance and Grace Reid fell agonisingly short of winning a medal in the women’s 3m synchronised event.

The pair won bronze in Kazan last year, but were forced to settle for fifth place on 270.63 points.

That was three points fewer than the third-placed pair from Ukraine, with Torrance and Reid in the bronze medal position until their final dive.

The final leg of the World Series will take place from 17-19 May at the London Aquatics Centre. Tickets are available now.
