Women’s 3m final
After exciting preliminaries this morning, we ended the day with the women’s 3m springboard final but before that we had a quick chat with Georgi Chobanov, coach and judge from Bulgaria who had nothing but praise for Rostocks’s International Divers Day which he called one of the best organised competitions he has ever attended.
He also commended the level of the athletes that started in Rostock this year and thanked the organising committee and their team for their friendliness and helpfulness. The level of detail that went into organising the event is what made him immediately feel at home. Thank you for your kind words, Georgi!
But what about the last final of the day? Six athletes fought in a spectacularly close competition and after fives dives, it was Ying Wei from China who won the gold medal with 317,20 in front of her team colleague Xiaohui Huang (309,75) and Uliana Kliueva from Russia (300,30 pts). Congratulations!
