Troy Dumais & Kristian Ipsen win at World Cup


Troy Dumais and Kristian Ipsen won the silver medal in the men’s synchronized 3-meter contest Thursday at the FINA Diving World Cup, the top international competition of the 2010 season.

Dumais and Ipsen scored 440.01 points to finish second to the Chinese team of Qin Kai and Luo Yutong, who won with 460.62 points. Ukraine’s Illya Kvasha and Oleks Prygorov, the 2008 Olympic bronze medalists, were third at 432.30.

Dumais and Ipsen moved from fourth to second with two solid dives in the final two rounds. Heading into the last round, Ukraine was in second place, with the United States three points back and Canada six points behind the U.S.

The Canadians scored 78 points on their last dive, so Dumais and Ipsen needed 72 points to be assured a spot on the podium. They came through with 87 points on their final dive, a reverse 2 ½ with 1 ½ twists. Kvasha and Prygorov followed with the same dive but could not match the U.S., giving Ipsen and Dumais the silver medal.

“It was a great contest. It was close, and everybody was diving well. We had fun and enjoyed ourselves,” said Dumais, who also won a silver medal with Ipsen at the 2009 World Championships.
