BUDAPEST, Hungary — David Dinsmore (New Albany, Ohio/Miami, Fla.) and Krysta Palmer of Carson City gave the U.S. its first medal of the 2017 FINA World Championships with a bronze in the mixed 3-meter/10-meter team event Tuesday night.
Dinsmore and Palmer combined to score 395.90 points on six dives to win the bronze medal. Matthieu Rosset and Laura Marino of France won the gold with 406.40 points and Mexico’s Rommel Pacheco and Viviana Del Angel were second with 403.25 points.
Palmer, a former national team trampolinist competing in her first international diving meet, picked up 47 points on a reverse dive pike on 10-meter and then scored 55.8 points on a front 3 ½ pike and 61.5 points on a back 2 ½ pike on 3-meter.
“We did it. We didn’t have many expectations coming into this, but we had a great time and that’s what it’s about,” Palmer said. “This event is very new in a lot of eyes, and to have the opportunity to participate in it was incredible for both of us. We didn’t expect too much, but we came out and we’re happy.”
Palmer also will compete in the individual 3-meter event beginning Thursday.
