50 points up and title in hands for Lou Massenberg

29.6.2018

German Lou Massenberg was the only diver to touch 9 points in the final of A Boys 3 meters on Friday night. He improved a massive 50 points from the prelim and was crowned for European Champion with 543,85 points.

– Prelim was not that good, so I was happy with the third place in the morning, but I wanted to change some things for the final and made a better warm up. 543 points in the final, I can be very happy with that, Massenberg told a bit shocked.

Adrian Abadia Garcia from Spain reached for silver with 514,20. Italian Antonio Volpe made his way to the podium 4,7 points behind Abadia Garcia.

Ruslan Ternovoi and Matthew Wade Gardiner led the race since morning. Both faced some minor issues in the final and were found below top three.

Koroleva champion on 1 meter

Vitaliia Koroleva shined as a champion in A Girls 1 meter. Really nice 303B brought here two times 8,5 points totaling her serie to 392,55 points. Another Russian, Uliana Kliueva, was third, just a shy 1,5 points behind Valeria Antolino Pacheco from Spain. It seemed to be a double for Russia, but Antolino Pacheco nailed a nice 105B on the last round of final.
