Canadian diver Meaghan Benfeito wins second bronze at Rio 2016

Meaghan Benfeito won bronze in the women’s 10-metre platform diving competition at Rio 2016 Thursday.

It’s the Canadian’s second medal of the Games. She won bronze in the women’s 10-metre synchronized platform event with her partner Roseline Filion last week. The Laval, Que., pair also won bronze in that event at London 2012.

Benfeito finished with a total score of 389.20. Filion was also in the final Thursday but missed the podium with a score of 367.95.

China’s Qian Ren and Yajie Si were well ahead of the pack, winning gold and silver, respectively.
