Waterfield fails in mission to Moscow
5:19pm Friday 13th April 2012 in Sport
Tom Daley and Southampton's Pete Waterfield failed to take advantage of a second-string China team as they missed the medals in the platform synchro on the opening day of the World Series event in Moscow.
An error-strewn performance from the British duo meant they were never likely to replicate the silver medal they won in the second leg of the series in Beijing last month.
Instead they had to be content with fifth place with a score of 429.39 as Germany's Sascha Klein and Patrick Hausding broke China's dominance.
The Chinese had won every gold at the opening two World Series events but second-choice pairing Lin Yue and Yuo Liang failed even to make the podium, finishing just ahead of Daley and Waterfield in fourth.
