Heading into the fourth dive in second spot overall, the pair fluffed their lines and could only collect 41.28 points to drop to sixth and last position with a total of 211.08 points. Although they recovered to score 75.84 points – the highest of their five dives – it was only enough for them to move up two spots to finish fourth with a 286.92 total – just 0.96-point short of third-placed Robyn Birch-Emily Martin (287.88) of Australia.
