BARCELONA, Spain, July 24. TODAY featured a non-final run of dives at the Piscina Municipal de Montjuic with China setting up another likely double-medal outing in an individual event.

Thus far, China has won nine medals along with five triumphs out of the six events available. Today, Chen Ruolin set herself up for a victory in the women's 10-meter platform with a top-ranked tally of 373.65 in the semifinal round.


Great Britain's Tonia Couch put together a strong second-ranked total of 368.15, while China's Si Yajie took third out of semis with a 341.85 point tally. Canada's Roseline Filion (327.45) and Germany's Maria Kurjo (317.60) could also make a run at the podium with Chen and Couch likely to be a twosome battle for gold.

The top 12 divers all made the finale with Great Britain's Sarah Barrow, Venezuela's Maria Betancourt, Malaysia's Pandelela Rinong Pamg, USA's Tori Lamp, France's Laura Marino, Ukraine's Iuliia Prokopchuk and Mexico's Alejandra Orozco all earning a spot in the finale to vie for the world title.
