Olympic qualifier Oliver Dingley missed out on a place in the 3m springboard final of the FINA Diving World Cup in Rio, while Natasha MacManus finished 47th in the qualifiers for the women's 3m event.

Dingley finished 11th in Sunday's preliminaries but was unable to match yesterday's score of 415.05 points - his final tally of 391.30 saw him finish 15th, three places of a spot in the final.

The Yorkshire-born diver will have the considerable consolation prize of becoming the first Irish diver to compete at an Olympics in 68 years.

Earlier, Natasha Hamilton's Olympic dream ended when she finished 47th of 54 competitors in the women's preliminaries.

The Dubliner, who turns 18 this week, will have learned a lot from what was her first senior major international meet however.
