Montreal athlete places 4th in women's 20m, fellow Canadian Aimee Harrison 13th
Rhiannan Iffland of Australia continues to rule the high diving world and be a formidable challenge to Montreal's Lysanne Richard.
Iffland, the reigning three-time cliff diving World Series champion, opened the season on April 13 by winning on the Philippines' Palawan Island.
On Sunday, she earned 70.20 points for her 5143D (forward two somersaults 1 ½ twist) and 96.90 for her 5461C (inward three somersaults ½ twist).
"I could feel the pressure and all the eyes were on me, but I could manage it," Iffland said in a story published to the official FINA website.
A mother of three, Richard was third on Palawan Island and was third in the overall standings last year.
