GOLD for Newbery in 10m platform

FIRST diving gold for Aussie women

She would’ve been RP’s first Olympic gold medalist

Long before swimming champion Natalie Coughlin came along, there was Victoria Manalo Draves who won gold medals in springboard and platform diving at the 1948 London Olympics. ... But ethnic discrimination didn’t faze Draves who began diving at the age of 16. She married her diving coach Lyle Draves in 1946 and the half-Filipina, half-English mestiza became the first female diver ever to win two gold medals in the same Olympics and the first Eurasian Olympic medalist in history.

As a result, the women's semifinals felt more like a clinic than a competition. And she's tough! Sure would hate to have her judge our backyard belly-flops.

MEDAL won't be easy

ATHENS -- Emilie Heymans will wear her lucky bathing suit this afternoon -- and she may need that and a whole lot more -- to earn her second medal of the Olympic Games. ... "No, I'm not happy," said Michel Larouche. "I wasn't expecting being that bad ... We're going to have a different approach tomorrow (today). I'm going to have a little talk with her.

I love the smell of chlorine in the morning. Smells like 10-meter platform diving, which is a welcome slice of air-conditioned heaven on the hottest day of the Olympics. Athens turned Sahara hot today. The temperature hit 38 Celsius, which I believe is 244 degrees Fahrenheit.

Because the points from the first round preliminaries are now thrown out, but semifinal totals retained for the final, Wilkinson will start Sunday's final in fourth place, Hildebrand in ninth.

From Athens diver to McEntire flier?

Justin Dumais talks about diving as his former passion, the organizing principle of his life for the past two decades. He had thought about his retirement well before Monday, when Troy took a bad bounce off the three-meter springboard. .... He is also waiting for a letter, from McEntire, which will be sent out Monday and will tell him whether he will be one of the two fliers accepted into its training program.


Diving against the odds

Tomorrow, as expected, Emilie Heymans will dive for her second medal of the Olympic Games -- maybe gold. And tomorrow, Myriam Boileau will dive for herself, her family, for medical science and for everything she has gone through.

"Emilie was not really confident for the first dives but the brilliance is to finish third. She is in the ideal position I wanted her to be in," said Heymans' coach Michel Larouche.  "I didn't want her to explode in brilliance. I want her to save that for the final," he said.

WILKINSON survives scare in platform preliminaries (photo)

The 26-year-old Texan was mired in 17th place — none of her first four dives were especially sharp — and facing the prospect of being eliminated from her only event of the Athens Games. Only the top 18 moved on to Saturday's semifinals. But Wilkinson came through on her final dive,

Can't go wrong with three days of Laura

Because of a scheduling quirk at the diving well, which shares space with the water polo pool, women's platform will be contested over three days, which should be good for NBC and not so good for fans hanging on Wilkinson's flair for the dramatic.

"After our fourth-round dive, I was just thinking that anything was possible and that I was going to enjoy this moment with my brother," Troy Dumais said. "I missed my last dive, but those things happen. I have another event in the individual [3-meter], and I am going to hold my head high and get ready for that."

Olympic diving event marred with controversy

But the diving competition almost turned into farce, thanks to the behaviour of an over-excited spectator. ...And what happened was, a member of the crowd actually managed to breach security, get onto a diving board and jump into the pool. ...whether that rattled the Chinese or what, is unclear. But they basically muffed their next dive.
