Australian super-fish duos have taken out the gold and silver placings for the Women’s 10m Synchronised Platform medals, ahead of a Canadian bronze finish.

Chantelle Newbery and Loudy Tourky won the event with a total of 317.58 points, only 7.68 points ahead of Lindsay Croak and Melissa Wu.

Newbery will look to continue her winning form in the 3m Springboard, 10m Platform, Synchronised 3m Springboard Pairs. Her Diving partner, Tourky, is also competing in the 10m Platform, seeking to match her Manchester Games gold.

"Individually our dives were a little sharper but it was a synchronised event so it doesn't matter," said Newbery. "It was a great result. There are a few things we can work on for the future."

Second placed Lindsay Croak and Melissa Wu from Australia earned 309.90 points. Croak successfully competed on dry land at the Manchester Games, competing in the Gymnastics competition and winning gold in the Team All-round and silver in the Individual Vault.

Canada’s Meaghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion were awarded the bronze medal with their final score of 303.15 points, repeating their placing in the same event at the 2005 Montreal World Championships.

Fourth and fifth places went to English teams, with Tonia Couch and Stacie Linda Powell scoring 290.46 points and Sarah Ellen Barrow and Brooke Graddon recording 275.91 points.
