In the semi-finals, I thought that Hu was a bit undermarked and that Tian was a bit overmarked. But Hu just ripped four of six his dives in the final -- 11 10's on six dives, seven of which counted -- and his other two weren't shabby either. Tian was sharper than in the prelims, but he just wasn't at his best. Helm's last dive was brilliant, and he has such lovely form. He was so shocked to find he was in second place! I have to admit a preference for divers who do the tuck with their knees together (Hu, Helm) over those who do the tuck with their knees apart (Tian, Despatie). Despatie was a bit hot and cold in the final, and he overpowered his last dive, as did Robert Newberry on the same last dive. Newberry, Leon Taylor, and Peter Waterfield had some beauties as well.
