Euro silver for Dixon and Williams

9 Aug 2018

Great Britain's platform partnership of Matthew Dixon and Noah Williams sealed the Glasgow 2018 European Championship silver medal in the Men's 10m Synchro.

The pair opened well and surpassed that important 100 point marker and after the opening two rounds of required dives their score was 102.00

Their best and highest scoring dive came in the fifth round of the medal contest, a Reverse 3 1/2 Somersaults Tucked (307C) scored 80.58 and ensured a podium finish for Dixon and Goodfellow.

"We're super pleased with that result today, we've [Dxon and Williams] had some great results this year including Commonwealth silver and this is a great way to end the 2018 season.

"I've got the 10m individual still to go and I'm really looking forward to that and then it's time for a quick holiday, then back to training and learning new harder dives for next year," explained Dixon.

Dixon and Williams' final score was 399.90, just 0.9 of their Commonwealth Games score from earlier in the year.

They were joined on the podium by Aleksandr Bondar and Viktor Minibaev of Russia who took the gold medal with 423.12 points and bronze went to Armenia's Vladamir Harutyunyan and Lev Sargsyan with 396.84 points.
