BBC Sport - European Aquatics Championships: GB pair miss gold after disastrous final dive

Disastrous final dive costs GB pair gold

Great Britain's synchronised 10m platform diving pair Tonia Couch and Lois Toulson snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with a disastrous final dive at the European Aquatics Championships.

The pair narrowly led eventual silver medallists Ukraine heading into the fifth and final round.

However, a mistimed entry from Toulson, 16, saw them finish outside the podium places with Germany taking gold.

"Obviously we're disappointed with how it finished," Couch told BBC Sport.
