Knight-Wisdom, competing against a world-class line up, became the first Jamaican male diver to qualify for the Olympics, after he scored 397 in the three-metre springboard dive in the preliminaries.

But the 20-year-old made an even bigger splash in the finals to claim silver, which was the island’s first-ever World Champs diving medal.  (Jamaica Observer)
