RIO DE JANEIRO: Cheong Jun Hoong put up her hand and admitted that it was her error that cost Malaysia a first medal at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

The 26-year-old messed up her dive in round four of the women's 3m springboard synchro with Nur Dhabitah Sabri and Malaysia plunged down from third to fourth at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre.
