Day 3 begins
The first competitions of the day were the women’s 3m preliminaries and semi-finals.
The preliminaries saw 22 athletes competing for their place in the semi-finals, among them 4 German athletes – 2 of them Rostock’s very own Jette Müller and Thalea Paschel who train with WSC Rostock.
After 110 dives, only 12 athletes qualified for the semi-finals. The best athletes were Xiaohui Huang and Ying Wei from China. Thalea Paschel was the best German athlete but missed the semi-finals on rank 14.
All 12 athletes competed for their place in the final straight after the preliminaries.
The best ones were also the two athletes from China.
The best 6 of the competition will return to the 3m board this afternoon to compete for the medals.
