Two medals for Canada at Maple Leaf Simply Fresh 2008 Canada Cup

MONTREAL – Émilie Heymans of St-Lambert, Que., and Marie-Ève Marleau of Laval, Que., earned bronze on women’s 10-metre synchro and Blythe Hartley of Vancouver added a third place finish on women’s three-metre on Sunday to conclude the Maple Leaf Simply Fresh 2008 Canada Cup diving competition.

Canada ends the competition with a silver and three bronze medals. The meet was also the fourth stop on the FINA Grand Prix diving circuit.

World Cup champions Ruo Lin Chen and Xin Wang of China won gold on women’s 10-metre synchro with 356.10 points. Melissa Wu and Briony Cole of Australia were second at 351.96 and Marleau and Heymans third at 348.03, their second highest total ever.

‘’The competition was really fierce and everyone seemed at the top of their game today,’’ said Heymans, the silver medallist on individual 10-metre Saturday. ‘’We are really pleased with our performance but at the same time it was disappointing not to come out with the victory.’’

Marleau was also aiming for the podium’s top step.

‘’To finish only eight points behind the Chinese was a big accomplishment,’’ she said. ‘’It would have been so great to win this at home.’’

Meaghan Benfeito of Montreal and Roseline Filion of Laval, Que., were fifth at 334.32, their best ever score.

‘’We had a very tough start to the season but we’ve fought back really hard,’’ said Benfeito. ‘’We had an intense two weeks of training leading into this competition and it has paid off.’’

On women’s three-metre, world champion Jingjing Guo of China took the gold with 383.45 points with her compatriot Minxia Wu second at 368.90 and Hartley third at 356.40.

‘’It’s my best international performance this season so I’m very happy with it.,’’ said Hartley. ‘’It’s good to come here and deliver a consistent performance. It’s good for the confidence.’’
