Mitcham wins silver in diving
17 February 2014
Matthew Mitcham has won a silver medal in his return to international diving.
Mitcham and Australian teammate Grant Nel finished second in the three-metre synchro event behind China on the last day of the FINA Grand Prix meeting in Madrid.
Earlier Mitcham finished fifth in the platform final, his gold-medal winning event at the 2008 Olympics.
Australian Rachel Bugg also won bronze in the platform final, with compatriot Melissa Wu fourth.
Bugg has returned to international competition after a brief post-London Olympics retirement.
The Australian star of the weekend was Perth teenager Maddison Keeney, who won gold in the three-metre springboard and then teamed with Victoria's Anabelle Smith to win gold in the three-metre synchro.
Keeney, 17, moved to Brisbane this year after finishing school in Perth and is considered one of Australia's best medal prospects for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
