Filion earns spot in 10m platform finals at FISU Games

BANGKOK, Thailand (CIS) -

Competing in her first Universiade, Filion advanced to the semifinals after finishing seventh in the preliminary round. She had a score of 311.20 after five dives. Filion started strong in the semifinals scoring 74.80 points on her first dive - her personal best of the day. She accumulated a total of 321.10 points with five dives. She enters the final round of competition on Friday in sixth place.

"Roseline has quite a lot of experience at the international level," said head coach Aaron Dziver. "She understands what it takes, the pressure involved and how to withstand distractions - it allows her to perform well. The idea is to perform better and better at each event. She finished seventh after the preliminary round and she knew that she could do quite a bit better and become competitive for a medal."

A beginner to the international scene, Lauren Penko (Winnipeg, Man.) of the University of Manitoba finished 16th in the preliminary round which was just enough to get through to semifinals. With a total of 260.05 points, Penko finished 15th in the semifinal round. She needed to place among the top 12 divers to advance to the final.

Mexico's Paolo Milagras is at the top of the pack heading into the final. China's Lishi Lao and In Sun Hong of Korea round out the top three.
