Divers Nick Robinson-Baker and Ben Swain have secured Great Britain an Olympic place in the men's 3m synchro.

The pairing defied the odds to finish fourth at the Fina World Cup at 2008 Olympic venue the Water Cube.

National performance director Steve Foley said: "They are a relatively new team and what they've done is amazing."

Britain will also be represented in the women's 10m platform event after Stacie Powell and Brooke Graddon secured a semi-final spot at the same event.

The synchronised partnership of Robinson-Baker and Swain is barely a year old, but they are not guaranteed a place in Great Britain's team for the Olympics.

Despite securing qualification, the places are for Great Britain and the duo will have to compete at a national qualifier later in the year to book their places in Beijing.

Powell and Graddon delivered Britain's first qualifications of the World Cup with top 18 finishes.
