No final place for diver Powell

Southampton diver Stacie Powell failed to get past the opening round of the women's platform at the Aquatics Centre this evening.

Powell and TEam GB teammate Monique Gladding had designs on a place in tomorrow night's final but below-par performances meant they were agonisingly left in the two places below the 18-diver cut-off.

Powell, who did reach the semi-final in Beijing, was in trouble once she bombed her second dive which drew scores as low as three.

Gladding was far more solid, with only fours for her penultimate back two-and-a-half somersault costing her as she finished just a place outside the cut in 19th, but still 6.65 points adrift.
