Synchro bronze for Canada at China World Series

NANJING, China

Chinese divers displayed their power heading into next year’s Olympic Games in the series. They won all 24 gold medals on the circuit.

In women’s 10-metre synchro, Wang Xin and Chen Ruolin of China took the gold and overall title with 353.46 points. Australian pair Melissa Wu and Briony Cole followed at 340.56 points. Emilie Heymans of Greenfield Park, Que., and her partner Marie-Eve Marleau of Montreal were a close third at 339.90 points.

The Canadian Pan Am Games champions place second overall. They were second at the first two stops.

‘’We lacked some energy but still came out O.K.,’’ said Marleau. ‘’We’re pretty satisfied. It’s looking good for us for next year. And we got a really good look in this series at our top competition. We know what we need to work on.’’

Despatie was enthusiastic about the Series which is scheduled to go again next spring before the Olympics.

‘’It’s a fun format,’’ said Despatie. ‘’But the scheduling was very tough both physically and mentally. We’re all relieved it’s over, we’re totally exhausted.’’

The series was reserved for the cream of the crop in the sport: the top-eight from the world championships in the individual events and the top-six in the synchro events. In order the medallists at each stop received $5,000, $4,000 and $3,000 while the top-three overall in each event receive $10,000, $8,000 and $6,000.

Sheffield, England and Mexico City were the other stops on the series.
