    It means that GBR pair was excellent for a shorter race such as a 3-round one!

    1 CHN: CAO Yuan / ZHANG Yanquan 486.78

    3 USA: BOUDIA David / McCRORY Nicholas 463.47

    It was a difficult field out there .... the Chinese and Mexicans were way ahead of the rest and probably the only 2 who were consistently great. From 3rd to 8th, it all depends on how many tiny mistakes were made.

    Was watching with high hopes last night, was hoping that the pair could at least get a bronze but it was just not meant to be. Pandalela and Mun Yee's arms were always not in sync in their routines. Mun Yee's messy back dive entry also cost the pair some points.

    Anyways, best wishes for the MAS diving team and Im looking forward the men's next event and the individuals event.

    Finally, Chinese divers had to bow to the unheralded Russian in the 3m springboard men's event. And the Russian was among the lowest of the qualifiers ..... talk about improving your standards at the final.

    None of the divers did very consistent scores - except the gold medallist. From silver medal position to sixth, the gap was only 10 pts. And the last place finisher was only another 10 pts behind. Such a close contest for minor medals.

    Ya, it's been that way since the preliminary rounds. Even China's Hu Yadan went down to bottom of the pack, that's very surprising. I have never seen her dive this bad. She and the gold medalist, Chen RL had always finished 1,2 in competitions.
    The silver medalist from Aust is a surprise too, a newcomer.
