Demonstrate what I’m capable of

After she secured her position in the final, Torrance said, “My diving wasn’t quite where I wanted it to be this morning but the main thing is that I’m through to the final and get to dive again and demonstrate what I’m capable of.

“I’m going to get lunch, have a short rest, maybe a bit more training and then return for the final with a new mentality and just see what I can do.”

Teammate Scarlett Mew Jensen, who trains at Dive London, finished 15th overall and narrowly missed out on the final with a score of 209.75.
