Wu wins Grand Prix gold

12 May 2014

DIVING: Australian diver Melissa Wu has capped off a successful weekend at the Puerto Rico Grand Prix with a gold medal in the 10m platform.

The 22-year-old beat out Chinese stars Ji Siyu and Qian Ren in the event's final for a place on the top step of the podium in San Juan on Sunday.

Compatriot Rachel Bugg finished fourth.

The victory added to Wu's bronze in the synchronised platform with Bugg a day earlier, which was won by Qian and Ji, with American duo Amy Cozad and Katrina Young in second.

It marks a remarkable comeback for the platform specialist, who was forced out of the pool much of last year with a back injury.

Wu, a two-time Olympic silver medallist, is heading to her third Commonwealth Games this year and leads a strong female contingent in Australia's 12-person diving team in Glasgow.
