For three rounds of diving it looked like a massive shock was brewing at the Aquatics Centre. To the delight of the home support the seemingly unbeatable Chinese pair of Cao Yuan and Zhang Yanquan trailed the British team of Tom Daley and Peter Waterfield although the margin never widened to more than a few points. However as suddenly as it came the moment soon passed for the home pair as Waterfield over-rotated badly on his fourth dive and the Britons dropped 20 points on China and out of the medal positions. The Chinese duo were untroubled from then on and won by a clear margin over the teenage pairing of Iván García and Germán Sánchez from Mexico with the USA taking the bronze medals.
