By CambridgeIndependent Reporter

Duo take third place in Beijing

Dan Goodfellow earned a bronze medal at the FINA Diving World Series in Beijing.

The Meldreth-based diver joined forces with Tom Daley for the first leg of this year’s series as they build up towards the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

The pair had been in second place throughout the synchro platform event, but their final dive, a forward four-and-a-half somersault in tuck position, was the most difficult in the programme and scored 62.16.

It saw the British duo finish with 417.93 points, allowing the Ukrainian team of Maksym Dolgov and Oleksandr Gorshkovozov to pip them to second with 417.93, having scored 78.81 for the same dive.

China’s Aisen Chen and Hao Hang won gold with 484.29.

The next leg of the series takes place in Fuji, Japan from March 15 to 17.
