Britain's Peter Waterfield beat Olympic diving champion Matt Mitcham twice to win silver in the 10m individual at the Fina Grand Prix in Rostock, Germany.

Athens Olympic silver medallist Waterfield beat Aussie Mitcham in the semi-final and the final, when he also topped German star Sascha Klein.

"I am pleased that after my injuries I am getting back to my best," said Waterfield, who scored 510.20.

Gold went to China's Liang Huo with 564.50 points and bronze to Aisen Chen.

Southampton-based Waterfield has taken time to recover from shoulder surgery, although he finished fourth on the springboard at the World Championships last August.

The individual event was one of three in Rostock for Waterfield, who also finished fifth in the 10m synchro, with partner Max Brick and 12th in the 3m synchro with Chris Mears.

Team-mate Helen Galashan impressed by finishing in sixth place in the women's 10m individual.
