No medal for Daley but Laugher shines at World Series

June 2, 2014 07:06 am

Great Britain's Tom Daley just missed out on the podium at diving's World Series in Canada but there was success for team-mate Jack Laugher.

The former world champion and Olympic bronze medallist qualified comfortably for the six man 10m platform final but his 486.35 points score ranked him fourth.

China's Cao Yuan took gold ahead of team-mate Qiu Bo, the three-time world champion, while Germany's Sascha Klein completed the podium.

However, Laugher won his first-ever World Series silver medal in Windsor, upgrading his recent individual bronze to take second behind China's He Chong in the 3m event.

The 19-year old also partnered with Chris Mears to collect bronze in the 3m synchro, repeating their recent result in Moscow.

Tonia Couch and Sarah Barrow followed their silver medal performance in the London leg of the competition with another second place in the women's 10m synchro.

But Barrow missed out in a medal in the individual 10m event, though coach Andy Banks was happy with her 338.80 points score that secured fifth.

The British team now travel south to Mexico for next week's concluding World Series event in Monterrey.
