SINGAPORE - Diving twins Timothy and Mark Lee took the top two spots respectively in the men's open 3m event on the final day (June 11) of the 8th National Diving Championships.

They had previously finished in the same order in the 1m springboard on Friday (June 9) and clinched the gold as a pair in the 3m synchronised event the day after.

In the women's 3m event, it was Ashlee Tan who won the gold ahead of compatriot Fong Kay Yian and Kiwi Shaye Boddington.

Tan, 17, also came up on tops with team-mate Joshua Chong in the synchronised 3m mixed event.

The championships took place over three days at the OCBC Aquatic Centre, with Singapore's senior divers competing with counterparts from Macau and New Zealand across the various events.

There were also separate events in the boys' and girls' categories.

The Lee twins, Tan, Fong and Chong are headed for August's SEA Games in Malaysia, part of an eight-strong diving contingent that also includes Myra Lee, Freida Lim and Jonathan Chan.
