Sheffield - FINA/Midea Diving World Series

Canada's Jennifer Abel and Emilie Heymans won the silver with a score of 315.00 while Tania Cagnotto and Francesca Dallape (Italy) took bronze with 303.60 points.

Rebecca Gallantree and Alicia Blagg were competing in their first leg of the series together and secured fifth place with a score of 294.00.

"That performance felt really good," Gallantree said. "It was the first time we performed that list internationally, after adding a more difficult dive, and we're both really pleased with the score.

"That's our best result since the Commonwealth Games and shows, at an early stage in the season, how far we've come as a pair. Diving here in Sheffield is an amazing experience in front of a sell out crowd and they kept us focused throughout."

Blagg added: "The home crowd was amazing and just fed my adrenalin. I was very nervous before but didn't let them get the better of me and affect my performance. There were a lot of positives to take from that performance."

China's World Cup champion Hu Yadan struck gold in the last event of the night - the women's 10m Platform.

The final was a straight shoot-out between Hu and Olympic champion Chen Ruolin with both divers adopting the same list.

But Hu stormed to victory over her more experienced rival, outscoring Chen on all five dives to win with 442.00 with her teammate finishing on 408.60.

Mexico's world champion Paola Espinosa picked up bronze with her score of 356.10.

Great Britain's Jenny Cowen held off the nerves on her World Series debut to score 297.50 for seventh place overall.
