Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow won Olympic bronze in the mens synchronised 10 metres platform final as Britains aquatics stars claimed another medal in Rio. Kyler Fackrell Jersey .After Adam Peatys gold and Jazz Carlins silver in the swimming pool on Sunday, Daley and Goodfellow added Olympic bronze on Monday.Chinas Chen Aisen and Lin Yue won gold with 496.98 points at Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre. David Boudia and Steel Johnson of the United States took silver with 457.11 points, while Daley and Goodfellow finished with 444.45 points.The British pair were diving last of the eight teams and there was a tense wait before the result was confirmed. Daley had his arm around Goodfellow and the pair tumbled into the water in delight as the result was declared.Daley was appearing in his third Olympics. He placed eighth in the event when aged 14 in Beijing in 2008, despite a bust-up with partner Blake Aldridge.Pete Waterfield and Daley combined to place fourth at the London 2012 Games, when the Plymouth diver won bronze in the individual 10m platform.The individual event begins on August 19 and 22-year-old Daley is targeting gold. He will be boosted by a surprise bronze alongside Goodfellow.Goodfellow, from Cambridge, had moved into Daleys London home for five weeks in the build-up to the Rio Games to try to solidify their partnership on and off the boards.The pair had won European silver in May, and it might have been gold had 19-year-old Goodfellow not erred in the final round.Daley was in buoyant mood on arrival in Rio following the squads Florida training camp. And he was even keen for some British weather in Rio.It was overcast and blustery, so the Plymouth diver got what he wished for in the outdoor venue. Diving last of the eight teams, Daley and Goodfellow were in medal contention throughout.The pair were third after the first three of six dives, but their fourth dive, a reverse three and a half somersaults with tuck scored 81.60 as they slipped to fifth.Their penultimate dive -- a forward four and a half somersaults with tuck -- scored the highest degree of difficulty in their repertoire at 3.7. But they delivered, scoring 92.13, to return to a provisional podium position, behind China and the United States, but ahead of Germany and Mexico.Just a back three and a half somersaults with pike was to come, with the Britons again diving last, would know exactly what they had to do. They needed more than 83.61 and scored 89.64 to leapfrog the German duo, who finished fourth. Jake Ryan Jersey .com) - Following a late-game loss to the reigning NBA champs, the Toronto Raptors will look to sustain their recent high-level play as they travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers. Wholesale Packers Jerseys .

Saint Marys and Western Kentucky are both feeling pretty good about themselves heading into their matchup on the Gaels home court Wednesday night.The 20th-ranked Gaels (7-1) bounced back from their first defeat of the season -- a 65-51 home loss to Texas-Arlington last Thursday -- with a strong performance in an 84-53 victory over UC-Irvine on Sunday.We played better tonight, Gaels coach Randy Bennett said after the game. That was the best weve played in a while.Saint Marys hit 56 percent of its field-goal attempts, improving its season shooting percentage to 50.9 percent, ninth best in the country. The Gaels also made 10 of 17 3-point attempts, putting them at 40.2 percent for the season.Immediately after that strong performance, Bennett had a quick assessment of Western Kentucky.They beat Indiana State today, he said, obviously impressed.Indeed, the Hilltoppers (4-5) recorded an admirable 77-59 road win on Sunday over an Indiana State team that had defeated 15th-ranked Butler four days earlier on the same court.Tonight was our best game, by far -- a complete game, as a team, first-year Western Kentucky coach Rick Stansbury said.The Hilltoppers hit 53.2 percent of their shots, a marked improvement for a team that was hitting just 40.1 percent coming into the game.This was the most efficient weve been offensively, Stansbury said. Tonight was our best effort of offensive toughness. Thats why we shot 53 percent.Just as significant was Western Kentuckys defensive effort, limiting the Sycamores to 37.9 percent shooting.We took their best two players and basically took them out of the game, Stansbury said.Brenton Scott, Indiana States top scorer, managed 17 points but was just 6 of 19 from the field, including 0 of 7 frrom long range. Brett Hundley Jersey. Matt Van Scyoc, the Sycamores No. 2 scorer, had just one point and missed all three of his field-goal attempts after scoring 23 points against Butler.It was Western Kentuckys first road win since Feb. 26 against Middle Tennessee.Im proud of our guys, said Stanbury, a former coach at Mississippi State. Weve been fighting. Several games we would get down in the second half and hit a wall.Western Kentucky had an 11-point lead late in the first half that Indiana State whittled down to one point early in the second half. But, instead of hitting a wall, the Hilltoppers dominated the final eight minutes to win going away.Pancake Thomas scored 22 points for the Hilltoppers while the teams leading scorer, Que Johnson, added 15 points, and Justin Johnson collected 14 points and 10 rebounds.That ended the Hilltoppers four-game losing streak, which included a 39-point loss to Washington and a 19-point loss to Eastern Kentucky. The question is whether the win over Indiana State was a fluke or an indication that Western Kentucky has improved significantly.The competition only gets stiffer as Saint Marys is the first Top 25 team the Hilltoppers will face this season.The Gaels got back on track against Irvine after their misstep against Texas-Arlington.I wasnt that concerned, Bennett said of the loss. I knew we had a stinker.The Gaels dropped eight spots in the rankings as a result of the loss, but did not drop completely out of the Top 25.Center Jock Landale still leads the Gaels at 18.4 points per game, although he has not exceeded 15 points in any of his last three games. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
