Meaghan Benfeito’s fourth Olympics has ended in heartbreaking fashion after she failed to qualify for the women’s 10-metre platform diving final.
The three-time bronze medallist struggled on her first dive, which has also given her trouble in practice.
She temporarily rose into the 12th and final qualifying spot after getting high scores for her fourth dive, but fell back into 13th after her final dive.
Fourteen-year-old Chinese diver Quan Hongchan soared above the competition, finishing just above her teammate Chen Yuxi.
Benfeito won a bronze medal in the 10-metre platform in 2016. She also won two bronzes in the 10-metre synchro event in 2012 and 2016 with former partner Roseline Filion.
Benfeito and Caeli McKay finished fourth in the 10-metre synchronized event last week, missing the podium by less than a point.
