British duo bounce back with bronze
Saturday 14 August 2010
British pair Megan Sylvester and Monique Gladding battled their way on to the podium to claim bronze in the women's 10m synchro diving at the European Championships in Budapest yesterday.
A superb final dive of the day, the Back and Somersault, catapulted them up the standings from fifth to third with a total score of 300.66. The gold was won by Germany's Christin Steuer and Nora Subschinski.
"I'm so happy to get that medal after what has been a really tough year for both of us," said Gladding. "It's great to turn the corner and show what we can do when we're fit.
"I had hip surgery this time last year and the recovery from that is a long process, but I feel like I'm well on the way – and results like this really help."
