Synchro springboard: world silver for Marsaglia and Tocci. Olympic quota spots also for Jodoin Di Maria and Biginelli in the platform


First medal and new Olympic passes for the Italia Team in diving.

At the World Championships in Doha (Qatar), the pair of Lorenzo Marsaglia and Giovanni Tocci, competing in a sensational competition, scored 384.24 points and won silver in the men's synchro springboard. Ahead of the Italians were only the Chinese Zongyuan Wang and Daoyi Long (442.41), who became world champions. Completing the podium, in third with 383.28 points, were Spaniards Adrian Abadia and Nicolas Garcia Boissier.

The preliminaries of the women's platform were also enough to make our national team rejoice.

Sarah Jodoin Di Maria qualified for the semi-finals with the fourth-best score (319.45); 18th was Maia Biginelli (263.25), who also qualified for the next round. By virtue of the national places already assigned at last year's World Championships in Fukuoka (Japan), regardless of how the competition goes, the Italian women will gain two passes for Paris 2024. An excellent result that will allow Jodoin Di Maria and Biginelli to face the semi-finals in a lighter frame of mind, with the dream of standing on the podium at the world championship event.
