Meaghan Benfeito and Caeli McKay from Canada managed to capture a bronze medal for their performances in the women’s 10m synchro at the FINA Diving World Cup.
It was the first world cup for both the Canadians, which could be seen as they made their way over to the podium to accept their bronze.
McKay told reporters that she was extremely happy, adding that it was their personal best, and that they did a good job of enjoying their dives. She went on to say that it was her first World Cup and their first World Cup together, and that it was an overall good experience.
Not only did they claim a medal, but their place at the end of the event grants them automatic access to the FINA Diving World Series, which is the elite series of the sport.
Benfeito stated that their performance was made better by the fact that they both enjoyed themselves, and that they had the chance to show what they were capable of. She added that their final score was what they were aiming for, and that it was only the beginning of their career in the sport.
In the men’s 3m springboard, Francois Imbeau-Dulac finished 10th after qualifying for his first World Cup final. Philippe Gagne, from Montreal, finished 14th in the semi-final, but did not advance any further.
