On the second competition day of the FINA/CNSG Diving World Series, Kim Mi Rae representing PRK took gold in the 10m platform event (373.40 points).

Minjie Zhang (China) ranked second (364.60 points), and Yuxi Chen (China) won bronze (356.95 points).

“I was hoping to achieve higher results, but my fifth dive was not perfect enough. So I will focus on this part preparing for the next challenge”, noted Minjie Zhang. By the way, she spends 7 hours training per day. “I make efforts training to prepare for the competitions, it takes all my time, I can’t devote myself to study”, confessed Minjie.

Yuxi Chen was not satisfied with today’s results; she had some difficulties with the fifth dive, too. But in the future she will do her best to improve it.
