Pandelela Rinong and Nur Dhabitah Sabri were left frustrated in the women’s 10m platform final earlier this morning, despite putting on a brave performance against what was an incredibly strong field of divers.

Pandelela, who is already a Rio 2016 silver medalist, struggled to consistently clock in scores above the 70-mark, which pushed her down the pecking order, as the rounds went by. She finished 11th with a total score of 330.45 points.

Nur Dhabitah Sabri also faced the same issue – though at the tender age of 17, Malaysia seems to have a fantastic talent at its disposal.

She performed admirably in two rounds, which allowed her to place above Pandelela on the overall rankings. She secured 9th spot with a total score of 338.00 points.

As predicted, China secured the top two positions through Ren Qian [Gold] and Si Yajie [Silver], with Canada’s Meghan Benefit clinching bronze.
