Rome, July 23 - Italy's Tania Cagnotto took a
silver medal on Tuesday for the 1m springboard at the world
championships in Barcelona.
It was a bittersweet end to the low springboard competition
for Cagnotto, who was pitted in the final against Chinese
favorites He Zi and Wang Han, both with dives of equal
difficulty to Cagnotto's.
He Zi swooped the gold with a score of 307.10, just a tenth
of a point higher than Cagnotto's 307, her lead gained only in
the last dive.
Wang Han came in third with a score of 297.95.
''Darn! I could have won this time,'' Cagnotto told State
broadcaster RAI.
''I want to laugh because I came in second and I am almost
mad, because I lost the gold for just 10 hundredths of a
point,'' Cagnotto continued.
''But I had never thought I'd arrive in second, so I'm
super content,'' Cagnotto added.
The silver marks the 28-year old diver's seventh world
championship medal.
Cagnotto took another silver just days ago with her
colleague Francesca Dallape' in the synchronized 3m springboard.
Cagnotto, who recently posed for Italian Playboy, was the
first Italian woman ever to win a world championship diving
medal when she took bronze in Montreal in 2005.
She won four more medals prior to the Barcellona
championships, including silver in the 3m synchronized
springboard event with her partner Francesca Dallape' in Rome in
2009.
Cagnotto has been bouncing back in Barcellona after just
missing out on an Olympic medal in London, finishing fourth in
the individual 3m springboard and in the 3m synchro.
