On the second day of diving at the Commonwealth Games Jack Laugher stormed the 3m Springboard prelims. Going on to lead through the first few rounds of the final, a slight loss of form on his fifth dive left him 11 points down on Malaysia’s Ooi Tze Liang, and unable to pull it back he finished with a silver medal, his second medal of the Games so far.
Oliver Dingley got himself to bronze position going into the final round, and held on to collect his first Commonwealth Games medal adding to Laugher’s to give Team England two podium positions for the day. Dingley said: “Every diver aims for their best so I always knew it was a possibility to get a medal but it feels absolutely amazing to win bronze."
Also in action were James Denny (England) and James Heatly (Scotland) finishing in sixth and eighth respectively.
Competing for Team England in the Women’s 10m Platform were Sarah Barrow, Tonia Couch and 13-year old Victoria Vincent.
Tonia Couch performed two solid dives at the end of the evening to bring her back up the table having not performed to her usual standard in the earlier rounds. Although disappointed, Couch said she was "pleased to finish on a really good dive".
Sarah Barrow finished ninth, and just behind her in tenth was Victoria Vincent with a fantastic effort in her first senior international competition.
