Roseline Filion finishes fourth on 10m at FISU Games

BANGKOK, Thailand (CIS)

Filion got off to a strong start with a backward 2 ½ somersault, 1 ½ twists in pike position, registering 79.90 points and ranking her first heading into the second round. Tabulating 325.75 points for her five dives combined, Filion finished just 3.65 points behind Japan’s Mai Nakagawa who won bronze.

Despite missing out on a medal, Filion is very happy with her last performance of this season.

“It started off very well,” said Filion. “I was very consistent. My fourth dive was one I usually have many problems with, but it wasn’t so bad.”

“I knew it was very close for the bronze medal, so I was a little nervous for my fifth dive, but I was still able to control it. I just started off so strong and I’m not used to that. I kicked too late and missed the vertical, which ultimately put me out of the running for the bronze. But, I’m very happy overall.”

Filion will now return home and after a bit of rest, will soon begin training and preparation for next season’s World Cup trials.

“This competition gives me an idea as to what I have to work on next for the upcoming season. It’s another good opportunity to compete with international divers, which will help me a lot when I get home in preparation for the World Cup.”

The Chinese diver Lishi Lao dominated the competition, finishing first with 388.00 points. Mexico’s Paola Espinosa claimed second with 363.70 and Japan’s Nakagawa finished third with 329.40.

Filion recorded Canada’s best ever performance in 10m platform since Anne Montminy won bronze in 1999 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. In 2005, Canada’s National Senior Team member Marie-Eve Marleau finished fifth in the 10m platform in Izmir, Turkey.
