Vitaliia Koroleva and Ulyana Klyueva took gold in the 3m springboard diving event at the Russian Diving Championships in Kazan.
The winners got 298,20 points. The duet of Kristina Ilyinykh and Maria Polyakova won silver (295,50 points). Karina Shkliar and Marina Shishkanova ranked third (290,40 points).
“We have managed to make a good impression, but it could have been better. We have missed the Gold. Kazan provides great conditions. Finally, I got used to the swimming pool. There is one more start. Let’s cross that bridge when we get to it. I just want to reach my top”, confessed Ilyinykh.
The Russian Diving Championships take place at the Aquatics Palace in Kazan. The tournament will wrap up on 1 June. On the last day, male and female athletes will compete for medals in 1m springboard and 10m platform synchro.
