The two women, who also won bronze four years ago in London, finished third with 336.18 points.

Rio Olympics Day 4: What to watch and the latest news

The duo is half of the "Fab IV" on Canada's diving team. Filion, Benfeito, Jennifer Abel and Pamela Ware all have medal potential in Rio. Abel and Ware missed the podium in the three-metre synchro by less than a point.

"Fab" is an acronym — F for Filion, A for Abel, B for Benfeito, and the Roman numeral IV is a stylized W for Ware.

All four women will now shift their focus to the individual events.

The competition is being held outdoors for the first time since the 1992 Barcelona Games. On Tuesday, the water in the pool turned a putrid green colour. There was no immediate word on what caused the colour change.

Over the weekend the other half of the Fab Four, Ware and Abel, narrowly missed out on the bronze medal by less than a point.
