Big Upset on Day 1 - FINA Diving World Series in Montreal

(MONTREAL) – China snared three gold medals and Malaysia claimed one during a full day of synchronized diving at the FINA World Series in Montreal, Canada. Friday’s contests marked Day 1 of the third leg of the series - the only one held inside a 20th century Olympic venue.

The day began with an upset.

China had come to Montreal having won every single event of the 2018 FINA Diving World Series – 20 golds in all. But the 21st gold medal went to Malaysia’s Pandelela Pamg and Jun Hoong Cheong in the women's 10m synchro.

Chinese divers showed their incomparable strength in the inaugural day of the second leg of the FINA/CNSG Diving World Series 2018, taking place for the first time in Fuji (JPN), from March 15-17.

In the women’s 10m Synchro Platform, China’s Zhang Jiaqi and Zhang Minjie, who had also convincingly won last week in Beijing (CHN), claimed the gold with 335.70, leading the final from the very first dive.

Their scores fell short of the 368.22 points they had netted in Beijing. Therefore, they didn’t appear to be totally satisfied with their result.
