KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 1 – Her captivating smile after each dive spoke of her consistent overall performance in the women’s 3m springboard diving final at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics but Malaysian hope Nur Dhabitah Sabri missed out on a podium finish.
The 22-year-old Malaysian finished fourth in the final with 326.15 points. Chinese divers clinched a 1-2 finish in the final at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre with Shi Tingmao taking gold with 383.50 and compatriot Wang Han the silver with a 348.75 total. Krysta Palmer of the United States took the bronze with 343.75.
This is Dhabitah’s second Olympics after finishing in ninth place in the 10m platform individual at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
”I enjoyed my dives and I am satisfied with my overall performance. I was fully focused and gave my best. That matters to me. The rest is out of my jurisdiction,” said a smiling Dhabitah.
In the same breath Dhabitah added that it was a “tough mission with many obstacles” in this year’s Olympics, especially the coronavirus pandemic.
