LONDON: After nearly 10 years skipping the world's biggest sporting event, national diver Yeoh Ken Nee finished in 10th spot in the Men's 3m Springboard final of the London Olympics at the Aquatics Centre here today.
Competing in his second Olympics after Sydney 2000, the 29-years-old lanky diver from Kuala Lumpur collected a total of 437.45 points in the six degrees of difficulties of the event.
He collected 79.05, 78.20, 49.50, 79.20, 76.50 and 75.00 to secure the 10th position out the 12 divers who qualified for the final.
Russian's Ilya Zakharov won the gold (555.90 points) while Chinese divers Qin Kai (541.75) and He Chong (524.15) took home the silver and bronze respectively.
At the Sydney Games, he did not get past the preliminary rounds.
"I had to skip the Athens Games to further my studies while did not make the cut for the Beijing Games of 2008," he said.
He, however, was satisfied with today's achievement as he only targetted to be among the top 10 divers. -- BERNAMA
