Curtains down on FINA/NVC DWS 2017

With the fourth and final leg of the Diving World Series 2017 circuit completed in Windsor, Canada, last weekend (April 21-23), China climbes atop all individual and synchronised events in the overall rankings.

Chinese divers maintained an impressive and consistent form throughout the Series season, and swept 37 of 40 gold medals up for grab.

In Windsor’s leg only, every Chinese athlete who competed claimed at least a medal except the pair competing in the men’s 3m synchronised event.

China’s Xie Siyi leads the men’s 3m (66 points), while teammate Chen Aisen is the best in the 10m (72). The latter is followed by Yang Hao with 10 points less, 62, and Great Britain’s Tom Daley ranks third with 58 points.

Compatriot and Olympic champion Jack Laugher comes second in the 3m with 64 and Cao Yuan (CHN) third with 60.

Veteran Shi Tingmao leads the women’s 3m board with 72, in front of Australia’s Maddison Keeney (54) and Canada’s Jennifer Abel (50).

Si Yajie closes the almost perfect Chinese supremacy with the best position in the women’s 10m ranking (70). Behind her is Ren Qian (CHN, 64) and Meaghan Benfeito (CAN, 46).

Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Malaysia and Mexico, not to mention them all, were other strong nations with great results across the four meets.
