British diver Daley gets 2nd chance at first dive

Thomas Daley of Britain got a diving do-over in the opening

round of the men’s 10-meter platform final.

Daley lodged a protest after his first attempt, saying he was

distracted by flashing cameras in the stands. The FINA judge

reviewed the replay, which clearly showed several flashes going

off, and allowed Daley to go back up the tower for another

attempt.

He took advantage of his second chance, raising his score from

75.60 points to 91.80 on the back 2 1/2 somersault with 2 1/2

twists. With the higher score, Daley was tied for third after the

first of six rounds of dives on Saturday night.
