Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow continued their good recent run with a silver medal in the FINA World Diving Series in Guadalajara.

A week on from claiming bronze in the same venue, they upgraded to silver with an impressive display in the 10m Platform Synchro.

Chinese pair Yajie Si and Huixia Liu finished well clear in first with an overall score of 335.16, ahead of the British pair who finished with 317.10.

That was enough to edge them ahead of Malaysian duo Pandelela Rinong Pamg and Mun Yee Leong, who took bronze with a score of 311.46.

That second place was enough to push the British pair up to 90 points in the overall standings leapfrogging Russia to move into fourth with China well clear at the top.
