SINGAPORE - The 7th Singapore National Diving Championships concluded on Sunday with Singapore's divers winning two golds and a bronze medal on the second and final day of competition.

Singapore ended the competition with four golds, three silvers and four bronzes.

Freida Lim, last year's SEA Games women's 10m platform bronze medallist, clinched first place in the Fina Open Women's Platform category when her total score was 289.80. Kimberly Chan came fourth (221.95) in the event.

This was 18-year-old Freida's third gold this weekend - she finished first in the women's individual age group A platform with a score of 391.0 points on Saturday to qualify for the Fina World Junior Diving Championships in Kazan in November.

Joining Freida to qualify for Kazan is Lee Yi, who finished third in the B boys' event with a score of 432.90 on Saturday.

Freida also won the individual age A girls' 1m springboard event (340.55), ahead of fellow Singaporean Ashlee Tan (331.70), who also won the bronze in the women's Open 3m springboard.

Twins Mark and Timothy Lee, competing for the first time since their silver medal effort in the synchronized 3m springboard event at last year's Southeast Asian Games, also took gold in the same category with a total score of 357.48 on Sunday.

This year's championships saw 99 divers from nine countries take part in the two-day event - the highest number of participants in the championships' history.
