FINA 2007 World Championships

Melbourne

Women 10m Synchro final

Tonia Couch (Plymouth Diving) and Stacie Powell (Southampton Diving) had highs and lows at the World Championship pool in Melbourne after making the Women's 10m Synchro final impressively and then finishing a disappointing ninth overall.

A missed fourth dive did the damage for the British pair, who were lying in fourth place after round three, and in trying to make up too much ground on their final dive they slipped to ninth.

Women 3m Synchro Springboard Final

Tandi Gerrard (City of Leeds) and Hayley Sage (City of Sheffield) teamed up for their second successive World Championships, finishing eighth in a strong field that failed to feature the Canadian Olympic bronze medallists Blythe Hartley and Emilie Heymans in the final.

Gerrard and Sage finished with a total 294.36 points. Only 60 points separated the top eight, with gold going to the Chinese divers Minxia Wu and Jingjing Guo with 355.80 points, giving the 2008 Olympic host nation their eighth gold medal of the Championships. German pair of Ditte Kotzian and Heike Fischer took silver with 318.45 with bronze going to Briony Cole and Sharleen Stratton of Australia with 313.14 points.
