Pandelela-Dhabitah win bronze in synchronised 10m platform final

PETALING JAYA: Pandelela Rinong climbed the podium for the second time at the 19th World Aquatics Championships in Budapest, partnering Nur Dhabitah Sabri this time to take bronze in the women's 10m platform synchro event.

Pandelela-Dhabitah put up a much-improved showing from the preliminaries to earn 298.68 points to place third in the final.

It is Pandelela's third successive world meet medal in the 10m platform synchro event. She clinched bronze in the 10m platform individual earlier in the week.

She secured a bronze with Cheong Jun Hoong, also in Budapest, in 2017.

Pandelela grabbed a silver with Leong Mun Yee in Gwangju, South Korea in 2019, which is Malaysia's best result in the 10m platform synchro so far.

China's Quan Hongchan-Chen Yuxin bagged gold with 368.40 points while Americans Delaney Schnell-Katrina Young were just ahead of the Malaysians with 299.40 points.

Pandelela-Dhabitah placed sixth in the preliminaries with 270.90 points earlier in the day.
