Nikolayevets Ilya Kvasha a final series of jumps on a three-meter springboard of the beginnings extremely unsuccessfully: 11-е a place from 12-ти after the first jump. But already the second jump carries out almost perfectly, gathers the best score and comes to the third place.
After the third jump Ilya already on the second place in an environment of Chinese Pang and Wu. Further the situation changes after each jump. Any of favourites didn't manage to avoid mistakes. The last sixth jump distributed awards. Mexican Kastillo broke the jump, rather low points were got by Chinese Pang. Ilya jumped better, earned higher judicial estimates, but, alas, and remained on the third place.
Nevertheless, it is Ilya's undoubted success in Belgrad - a bronze medal! I will remind, yesterday Ilya Kvasha with Alexey Prigorov in synchronous jumps became silver medallists.
