The American diving duo scored 390.06 points in the overall performance. "These competitions have shown a lot. These are our first international competitions, and they have shown us what we need to work on," said the Americans. At the World Championship, the athletes are going to deliver their best result by first rectifying their mistakes.

The athletes also spoke about their impressions of their visit to Russia's third capital: "It's very beautiful. We didn't expect that. When we talked about Russia in our country, the USA, I couldn't even imagine such beauty! So when I came here, I was amazed. We have had a good time here, but we need to go back – to our daily routine."
