Britain’s Tom Daley missed the medal positions when he finished in 6th place in the Diving World Championships held in Barcelona. Also missing out on the medal places is the youngest diver in the men’s finals, 18-year-old Andrea Chiarabini from Italy.
19-year-old Tom Daley’s progress was hampered in the later stages of the 10 meter diving competition due to a torn tricep in his right arm that happened earlier in the week but he continued to compete having had a local anaesthetic.
However, finishing in first place and taking the gold medal home, is China’s Qiu Bo who retained his world title. Qiu Bo made amends for the disappointment of missing out on Olympic gold last year to by retaining his world title in the men’s 10m platform final on Sunday.
Qiu produced a near flawless display to finish well clear of American Olympic champion David Boudia in second place and Germany’s Sascha Klein back in third.
