Gold Coast 2018: Diving bronze for Mun Yee, Dhabitah
Leong Mun Yee and Nur Dhabitah Sabri dived into a bronze medal finish in the women's three-metre synchronised springboard at the 2018 Commonwealth Games today.

They scored 264.90 points to finish behind Australia's Esther Qin-Georgia Sheehan (284.10), who bagged silver in the same event at the 2018 FINA Diving World Series, and England's Alicia Blagg-Katherine Torrance (276.90).

It was their second ever Commonwealth Games medal after Leong won silver at Delhi 2010 and Dhabitah bagged bronze at Glasgow 2014, both of which they respectively achieved partnering Pandelela Rinong in the women's 10m synchronised platform.

Both will return to action together later in the women's 10m synchronised platform final, which will also be contested by compatriots Pandelela and Cheong Jun Hoong.

Earlier in the morning, Malaysian male divers also had some success as Ahmad Amsyar Azman, Syafiq Puteh and Ooi Tze Liang made the cut for the men's one-metre springboard final, which will also take place later today.

They finished seventh, eight and 10th respectively in the qualifying stage.
