S. Korean divers show best performance at FINA Worlds


South Korean divers set out to achieve amazing feats at this year's swimming world championships at home. They advanced to the final in 6 different events already, posting their best performances at the biennial competition.


Jongmin Kim has more details.


Kim Su-Ji became the first Korean diver ever to win a medal at the FINA World Championships on Saturday.


Kim grabbed the historic bronze medal in the women's 1-m springboard with a score of 257.20 points, behind Chen Yiwen of China (285.45) and Sarah Bacon of the U.S. (262).


The previous best performance by a Korean diver at the world championships was the sixth-place finish by Kwon Kyung-Min and Cho Kwan-Hoon in the men's 10m synchronized platform in 2009 in Rome.


Furthermore, the South Korean diving duo of Kim Yeong-Nam and Woo Ha-Ram often placed in the top 10 of their events.


On Monday, Kim and Woo never came close to leading in the men's synchronized 10m platform. They hung around the middle of the pack in the 12-team final and posted their best scores in the final dive with 83.25 points for their highest ranking together at a world championship.


This is their fourth consecutive worlds together. Their best performance had been seventh place, which they first achieved in the 10m in 2015 and again in 2017.
