Peter Waterfield beats Tom Daley to win British title


Daley and Waterfield won the synchro competition on Saturday

Peter Waterfield beat Tom Daley for the second successive year to retain the men's 10m platform title at the British National Cup in Southend.

Waterfield, who teamed up with his 16-year-old rival to win the 10m synchro title on Saturday, trailed the world champion at the halfway stage.

But the 2004 Olympic silver medallist from Southampton produced two superb final dives to win 494.25 to 472.35.

Commonwealth champion Max Brick won the bronze medal with 399.80.

"Last year I won this title off the back of an injury ridden year but now I have come here off a strong year and retained my title which is great," said Waterfield, 29.

"I have felt strong and over the moon with that win."

Daley said: "It is obviously disappointing to not win the title but I had a really long year last year and I just need to take the positives from this performance and come back stronger in my next competition."

City of Leeds trio Chloe Hurd, Alicia Blagg and Hannah Starling took the medals in the women's 3m springboard final.
