Cui and Down-Jenkins Finish Fourth in Mixed 3m Synchro
Montreal – Former LSU diver Lizzie Cui and her partner Anton Down-Jenkins finished in fourth place in the Mixed Three-Meter Synchro final in Montreal, Canada as part of the FINA Diving World Series. The pair dove to a score of 279.60, missing out on claiming the bronze by just 3.60 points.
“After Lizzie and Anton qualified for this competition at the world championships this past summer, they did a terrific job in their first world series event,” said LSU head diving coach Doug Shaffer. “The experience of diving today is invaluable moving forward.”
Along with her fourth place finish with Down-Jenkins, Cui also competed in the individual three-meter springboard this morning. In the first semifinal, Cui dove to a score of 243.70 to finish in sixth place.
Cui will be back in action on March 20 as she will take part in the next FINA World Series competition in Kazan, Russia.
