Diving Canada – POLIGNANO A MARE, Italy – A cramp in her leg bothered Canada’s Lysanne Richard all weekend as she placed fourth in the women’s 20-metre event on Sunday at the third stop on the Red Bull Cliff Diving Series.

Rhiannan Iffland of Australia, last week’s FINA World Cup champion, remained undefeated this season on the circuit with 324.00 points. Maria Paulo Quintero of Colombia was second at 278.95 and Yana Nestsiarava of Belarus was third at 278.15.

 

Richard, fourth at the World Cup, followed at 261.00. She was standing second entering the fourth and final round.

 

‘’I just made a slight error on my last dive but it was costly,’’ said Richard, third and second at the previous two stops this season.

 

Richard was not comfortable all weekend when her leg cramped up while walking to the platform for her first dive.

 

‘’All weekend I had trouble walking, bending, pointing and jumping,’’ said the nine-time medallist on the circuit. ‘’Still my first three dives were good. I did this competition without much warm-up because I needed to manage my energy. The walk to the platform is abrupt and long.

 

‘’I’m disappointed and this situation is not easy for me. I hope it will improve soon.’’

 

Aimee Harrison of Winnipeg made her circuit debut and placed seventh.

 

Iffland leads the overall standings with 400 points, Nestsiarava is second at 290 and Richard third at 240.

 

The next stop is June 22 in Sao Miguel, Portugal.
