Turkey’s Sahika Ercumen earned a national record with a 90m/295ft dive. While happy about the result, she wrote on Instagram:
“It was the worst dive I’ve ever done. I had received 2 red cards in this category before and this is the most difficult category for me!”
And Taiwan’s Mia Hou successfully dove to 60m/197ft for a national record.
Honduras’s Ana Rivera was gunning for a 40m/131ft national record during the final dive of the day and successfully dove to that depth, but according to the live stream, drew a red card due to her airway dropping below the waterline during her post-dive protocol.
