Commonwealth Games: Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix & Noah Williams win mixed synchronised 10m platform gold

Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix won her third diving medal at her first Commonwealth Games with mixed synchronised 10m platform gold for England alongside Noah Williams.

James Heatly and Grace Reid earlier claimed the mixed synchronised 3m springboard title to give Scotland their 13th gold – and 50th medal – of Birmingham 2022.

England’s Kyle Kothari and Lois Toulson finished 14.52 points behind Spendolini-Sirieix and Williams’ tally of 333.06 to take silver.

Australia’s Cassiel Rousseau and Emily Boyd won bronze.

“This has definitely exceeded what I hoped. I came here with no expectations – I just wanted to have fun,” said 17-year-old Spendolini-Sirieix.

“I made a conscious decision to train even harder than the last couple of months and it’s paid off.

“I don’t want to put any pressure on myself – that’s what makes you crumble. I’m very excited for the next two years.”

Spendolini-Sirieix last week won the 10m platform title and Williams the men’s synchronised 10m platform with Matty Lee.

The daughter of First Dates maitre-d’ Fred Sirieix, Spendolini-Sirieix also won women’s synchronised 10m platform silver with Eden Cheng.

This year is the first time mixed gender synchronised diving has been contested at the Commonwealth Games.

England’s divers leave the Games top of the standings with six golds, four silvers and five bronzes.
