Elena Bertocchi flies into the final from 3 metres at the World Championships in Fukuoka and gives Italy another Olympic quota place


Another excellent result for Elena Bertocchi at the World Championships in Fukuoka, Japan.

After the bronze medal and Olympic pass won alongside Chiara Pellacani in the 3m synchro, the Italian diver also qualified for the final in the individual 3-metre competition.

The 28-year-old from Milan (photo ANSA) completed the semi-final with a score of 303.05, enough to advance to the final act of the event.

The result guarantees Italy another Olympic national spot for the Paris 2024 Games.

Also qualifying for the final was Chiara Pellacani (304.95 points), who had previously won the Olympic pass in her speciality at the European Games in Krakow.
