Madrid, Spain - On the final day of competition at the FINA Grand Prix in Madrid, Spain, U.S. divers added another three medals to the overall medal count. Jessica Parratto (Dover, N.H.), who won gold the previous day with partner Amy Magaña in the 10-meter synchronized competition, earned another gold in the individual 10-meter event.

“I’m so happy to come away with two gold medals here in Madrid. I still have some details I need to improve on, but I’m most proud of saving my best list for last in my individual final, especially considering the large amounts of reps I did on the 10-meter the day before” said Parratto. “I’m excited to keep my momentum going onto Rostock.”

Kassidy Cook (The Woodlands, Texas) and Sarah Bacon (Indianapolis, Ind.), who went 1-2 respectively in the individual 3-meter springboard earlier this week, paired up to take gold in the 3-meter synchronized dive.

“Sarah and I were both very happy with our performance today,” said Cook. “Although we missed our last dive, we were still very happy with our overall performance and placing and are ready to improve and gain momentum in Germany. This was a great meet to help us prepare for the World Cup.”

The Indiana duo of David Boudia (Lafayette, Ind.) and Steele Johnson (Carmel, Ind.) paired up to take silver in the men’s 3-meter synchronized dive.

“Today wasn’t our best performance, but we can walk away from Madrid with a lot of positives, also knowing exactly what needs to be worked on as we continue our pursuit to the World Cup in Tokyo and ultimately the Olympic Games in July,” said Boudia.

In all, USA Diving athletes earned nine medals throughout the week, six gold medals, two silver medals and one bronze.

U.S. divers will travel to Rostock, Germany to compete in the next stop of the FINA Grand Prix February 20-23.
