High Diving, Day 1: Flawless LoBue; impressive Jimenez

The initial day of the High Diving competition at the 18th FINA World Championships in Gwangju, including the first two rounds of preliminaries for both men and women, brought different results for the reigning world champions. Steve LoBue (USA), winner in 2017, is the provisional leader, after excelling in his trademark dive, a front 5 somersaults, for which he got a massive 142.80 points from the judges. In the women’s event, Rhiannan Iffland (AUS), gold medallist two years old, is fifth.
