Diving: More gold for Russia in women's synchro 10m platform

In the evening session for diving, Russia saw continued success as Ekaterina Beliaeva and Iuliia Timoshinina teamed up to win the women's synchronised 10m platform, scoring a 307.44.

They were 17 points ahead of second-place team Eden Cheng and Lois Toulson of Great Britain, who slipped into the silver medal position thanks to a poor final dive for Ukraine's Kseniia Bailo and Sofiia Lyskun.

Bailo and Lyskun actually led the final through the first four dives, opening up a six-point lead heading into the final dive. Their 46.08 for an inward three and a half somersault tuck was well south of the more than 70 points earned by the top teams.

Beliaeva and Timoshinina won their first European title together, having captured silver in 2018 in this same event, and bronze in 2019.

Timoshinina had won silver in the individual 10m platform on Thursday (13 May).
