Daley and Aldridge aim to qualify for the Olympics next month
British teenager Tom Daley took his second medal of the Fina Diving Grand Prix in Madrid with third place in the men's platform individual competition.

Daley, 13, from Plymouth, took the final medal behind Chinese duo Jia Hu and Liguang Yang.

With his new partner Blake Aldridge he claimed silver, also behind China, in Saturday's men's platform synchro.

Nicholas Robinson-Baker and Ben Swain claimed bronze in a tightly-fought men's three metre springboard final.

The women's three-metre springboard synchro saw Britain's Hayley Sage and Tandi Gerrard slip back to fourth behind China, the Ukraine and Canada after being in the medals through the first two rounds.


Daley and Aldridge must finish in the top eight at the World Cup event in Beijing in February to earn Great Britain qualification for the event at the Olympics Games.

"It is not the best we have performed but we were getting excellent marks on our synchronisation," said Aldridge of Saturday's showing.
