Tourky (538.65), in second place after the morning preliminaries, came out on top and Emilie Heymans (527.79), in fifth place at the start of the final, took the silver with Blythe Hartley (490.17) winning the bronze.

The English diving hope Karen Smith (461.76) hauled herself back from eighth position after the preliminary round, to finish in fourth place pushing halfway leader Myriam Boileau from Canada into fifth place.

It was a see-saw contest from the start with Boileau and the other English diving hope Stacie Powell, two of the top three at halfway, losing ground after weak early dives.

That enabled the Canadian duo of Heymans and Hartley to move sharply up the leader board and join Tourky in a three-way fight for the medals that featured a string of marks of nine or over.
