French pair plunge into his­tory books

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Eu­ro­pean cham­pi­ons Matthieu Ros­set and Laura Marino won France’s first world diving ti­tle in Bu­dapest on Tues­day in the mixed com­bined 3m and 10m team event.

Ros­set, 27, and Marino, 24, won the event at the Eu­ro­pean cham­pi­onships last month in Kiev, but the duo said their gold medals at the World Aquat­ics Cham­pi­onships in the Hun­gar­ian cap­i­tal were “un­ex­pected, as well as fan­tas­tic”.

The French pair won with 406.40 points, ahead of Rom­mel Pacheco Mar­rufo and Vi­viana del An­gel Peniche of Mex­ico on 402.35 points, and Amer­i­can duo Krysta Palmer and David Dins­more (395.30).
