Broben misses 10m platform final at Worlds

25 July 2013

DIVING: Olympic silver medallist Brittany Broben has suffered a shock exit in the women's 10m platform semi‐finals at the world championships in Barcelona.

The 17‐year‐old Australian, who came second in the event at the London Games last year, placed16th on Wednesday to miss out on one of 12 spots on offer for Thursday's final.

Gold Coast schoolgirl Broben never got her rhythm going as she posted 287.30 points to be well off the pace set by reigning Olympic champion Chen Ruolin (373.65) of China. It came after Broben finished 10th in the final of the non‐Olympic 1m springboard event on Tuesday. During that final she clipped her feet on the board during a dive and it appeared to affect her confidence.

Australia are yet to claim a medal in diving in Barcelona with Anabelle Smith, Jaele Patrick and GrantNel the remaining hopes, all competing in individual 3m springboard events. Australia has no representative in the men's 10m platform, with Matt Mitcham taking an indefinitebreak from the sport following the London Games.
