Cleckheaton’s Lois Toulson finished fifth in the women's synchronised diving final.
Toulson and her diving partner Tonia Couch faced pairs from the US, Mexico, Brazil, China, Malaysia, North Korea and Canada in last night’s 10m platform event.
Scores throughout the final were extremely close, with China, Malaysia, North Korea, Canada and Great Britain battling it out in the top five for medals.
China’s Chen Ruolin and Liu Huixia were awarded gold, Malaysia’s Pandelela Rinong and Cheeong Jun Hoong silver and Canada’s Meaghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion bronze at the Maria Lenk Aquatic Centre.
Toulson and Couch finished fifth in the table with 319 points after hitting a high score of 79.68 in the fourth round with a two-and-a-half somersault one-and-a-half twist. The GB duo were last in the running order, the same position as their bronze medal-winning male counterparts, Tom Daley and Daniel Goodfellow, who performed on Monday night.
Toulson and Couch performed a back dive with pike, reverse dive, forward three-and-a-half somersault, two-and-a-half somersault and an inward three-and-a-half somersault in the tuck position in the five-round finale.
Their score of 76.68 was the joint highest in the third round, with the duo bouncing between fourth and fifth place throughout the final.
Scores were awarded out of ten for execution and synchronisation and multiplied by the difficulty score of each round.
Toulson, 16, is one of the youngest athletes representing Great Britain in Rio.
She had previously teamed up with Couch for the 10m synchronised dive at the World Series this year and the duo are ranked third in the world in the event by the International Swimming Federation, known as FINA.
