GLASGOW: Youngster Nur Dhabitah Sabri was unable to add to her Commonwealth Games medal collection after finishing sixth in the women's 3m springboard synchro at the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh on Wednesday.

Dhabitah and her partner Ng Yan Yee managed only 282.69 points.

Earlier, Dhabitah had won a bronze medal with Pandelela Rinong in the 10m platform synchro. 

Said the 21-year-old Yan Yee: "This is my second Commonwealth Games outing and I wanted to win a medal so badly … but I had one bad dive and it dashed our hopes."

In the men's 1m springboard, Ooi Tze Liang put up a creditable showing to finish sixth with 387.80 points in a 12-member field.

He was the only Malaysian men’s diver to make the cut for the final after the preliminary round. Ahmad Amsyar Azman missed out when he finished 13th with 294.45 points.
