Germany’s Wolfram Wins 10-Meter To Close Diving World Cup; Olympic Berths Lock

2021 FINA DIVING WORLD CUP – TOKYO

MEN’S 3-METER SPRINGBOARD – Finals

Two-time German Olympian Martin Wolfram won the men’s 3-meter competition to close the FINA Diving World Cup in Tokyo.

Wolfram competed in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, making the final on 10-meter in both years. An injury dropped him to 8th in the 2012 final, and Wolfram was 5th in 2016. Competing on 3-meter here, the 29-year-old eked out a six-point win over Great Britain’s James Heatly.

Wolfram had already booked Germany’s second Olympic quota spot in the event via a third-place finish in prelims. He held third through semis and passed up Heatly in the final.

France’s Alexis Jandard grabbed bronze, scoring 13 more than Spain’s Nicolas Garcia Bossier.

With today’s medals locked in, the Diving World Cup event closes – and so do the Olympic quota spots. The bids go to nations, rather than athletes, so some of the individual entrants are still up in the air pending federation decisions. But the Olympic dive field is locked in at this point at the country level, with no other qualifying events remaining.
