In the preliminaries, Dick and Jodoin ranked 10th and 11th and Dick posted her best score of the day with a 320.60 in the semi to stand fourth overall at that point.
Last season Dick was one of Canada’s busiest and most successful divers. She capped her 2017 season with a gold on tower at the Junior Pan Am Championships scoring two perfect 10’s. She was also fourth on 10-m at the World University Games and swept gold on all three boards at the Canada Games.
Competition in Rostock continues on Saturday. Ethan Pitman of Edmonton and Laurent Gosselin-Paradis of Montreal are entered in the men’s 10-m synchro event.
