MALAYSIA’S Pandelela Rinong and Leong Mun Yee finished in seventh place in the 10m synchronised platform diving event at the Aquatic Centre.

The duo scored a total of 308.52 points, which was well below their best. There were hopes that the duo would deliver the medals yesterday but the pressure got to them.
Both agreed that it was below par performance.

“We just could not do it right and the dives from third to fifth was very bad. We were just too tensed and that affected the performance,” said Pandelela.

Mun Yee also agreed that the dives from the third round onwards were disastrous.
“I cannot pin it down to any one thing but I am totally not satisfied with the dives. There was high expectations which is quite normal. We could have done better,” she said.

Chen Ruolin and Wang Hao claimed China’s third gold medal in as many diving events. They scored a total of 368.40 points.

Mexico’s Alejandra Orozco Loza and Paolo Espinosa Sanchez claimed silver while Canadian duo Meaghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion took the bronze.
The Mexican divers had a total of 343.32 while the Canadians 337.62.

For the Mexicans it as a double in the diving pool. Their men’s synchronised 10m platform team also bagged the silver a day earlier.

For the Canadians it was also their second diving medal after winning the bronze in the women’s 3m synchronised springboard event. They also had a bronze in the judo competition.

The Malaysians have one more synchronised event which is the men’s 3m synchronised springboard with Bryan Nickson Lomas and Huang Qiang in the fray.

For Mun Yee her Olympics is over while Pandelela still has the individual event to compete in.
That will be the 10m platform on Aug 8.

“I will prepare for that and make sure I am in the right frame of mind for it. I will not set any target but ensure that my focus is on doing well. There are a lot of good divers out there and it will not be easy. All I can promise is to make up for this disappointment and try and do better,” she said.
