"I'm so happy about how the whole day went. I've been working on my consistency in training and also in competition and I did exactly that today ... I haven't got an individual since 2013," Ware said.

Jennifer Abel of Laval, Que., was eighth with a score of 315.30.

Ware broke a streak of 4 straight 4th place finishes with a bronze medal in the Women's 3-metre Springboard final at the FINA Diving World Cup. 0:15

"Today was a hard day for me. Unfortunately, I didn't have one good dive so I'm pretty disappointed with my performance. But at the same time, there's so many things that I still have to improve. But I improved since last year and I'm just really looking forward for next year to be even better in my technique," Abel said.

In the mixed 3m synchronized diving competition, Canada's Mélissa Citrini-Beaulieu and François Imbeau-Dulac were out of sorts on their final dive and dropped to last place in the field of 13 pairs.
