Super silver for Reid and Haslam

8 Aug 2018

Grace Reid and Ross Haslam collected yet another medal for Great Britain on the third day of diving action in Edinburgh after they sealed silver in the Mixed 3m Synchro

With the opening two rounds of required dives completed, the GB pair of Reid and Haslam were in the lead with 100.40 points after their 301B, Reverse Dive Piked scored 51.00.

From there on the GB pair remained in the top three and in contention for a medal. This is only the second time that they have competed together, the first being the FINA Diving World Cup in Wuhan, China earlier this year where they won bronze.

Reid and Haslam’s best dive came in the final, their Forward 2 ½ Somersaults Piked (107B), scored a total of 73.47 and confirmed the podium finish with a final score of 308.67.

"We're both very very pleased with that result, although I think we both would've like to taken home the gold and you know it probably was within reach but the Germans really stepped it up today.

"It was hard to almost hear the dive announced because the crowd was so loud but that's a good problem to have," explained Reid at the pool where her diving career began.

Haslam then added, "It's really great to get on the podium after the near misses at the Commonwealth Games earlier in the year and being able to compete with Grace really helps to develop my diving. I'm just really happy with the way it came together today and that we goa medal.
