    Women's 10m platform prelims are over and the Chinese leader has about 43 points over her nearest rival.

    Very weak competition after the preliminaries

    And Paola Espinosa was very off form today, qualified in 13th place to the final but still with real chances of doing what we expect from her, take a medal this time after coming in 4th in Beijing

    I hope she got the nerves out of her during this preliminaries because her level is way better than the rest of the field, except Chen Ruolin the defending world and olympic champion. Paola needs to refocus her and keep concentrated, erase what happened today. Maybe the bronze by Laura Sanchez got into her as she wasnt expected to medal and the limelights were over Paola to be ' the one '

    The silver medal could be there up for grabs to anyone who dives consistently, even the second chinese looked sloppy.

    About to start off...Hope Paola does well here. And my Malaysian friends who don't really post anything besides soccer on FB are now debating degrees of difficulty, so I hope the Malysian girl does well, as well .

    I am very upset and concerned about Paola, I dont know whats happening to her. She even stated in some interview after the semifinal where she barely qualified, that she was glad of advancing because she didnt think she would, this is not the best of statement and not of our biggest medal hopefulat this games given her credentials, talent and experience

    And taking in consideration that she already won a medal in the synchro event so I really dont know why she is so disappointing with her form and her attitude, individually this is her time, the best shot she would ever have at a medal in the platform and she just have been a shadow of herself

    Not a bad start for Paola in the final, but I agree defeatist talk is a bit worrisome from someone with her experience. Hopefully, it turns out to be just talk and she does all her dives well.

    No one besides Chen has been diving well. Hu Yadan has missed both first dives in the final.

    You were not kidding. She's missed both her dives so far, second one in the 4's

    Thats why I am disappointed with Paola, she is clearly the best diver out there among with the chinese and given the form of the second chinese that is really bellow her standard, Paola just needs to get hers dives consitently and the silver could be hers. But only she knows what is happening to her, we never expected her performance being this sloppy

    Many of the top performers opened the competition with fail dives, so this is becoming a survival of the strongest mentally speaking, I could see the australian teenager taking the advantage and even the russian, a very weird podium would be

    Paola Didn't look like she pushed out all the way from the platform. Hungarian girl doing well, though

    Much better 4th round dive from Paola . That's more like it from her.

    Ok. I was wondering whom you were talking about. The divers are playing hot potato with the silver and bronze medals.

    Hu finally remembers how to dive. Unfortunately for her, it took her 3 rounds to get there. Nice, now coach is yelling at her.

    Roulin is like 50 points ahead of 2nd place, so the gold is hers. But bronze and silver is still not certain.
