Cesilie Carlton of the US put a poor season behind her to fire to a first victory since 2015, with Australia’s Helena Merten finishing in second place and German wildcard Anna Bader in third.

Following a somewhat low key season for Carlton, in which 6th place was her previous high from the 21m platform, the 36-year-old was once again inspired by the magic of Stari Most, reeling off a series of river-ripping dives to go one better than her second-place finish here last season. Merten and Bader have been no strangers to the podium this season, and again they showed unerring consistency at the shivery Neretva River to join Carlton in the champagne celebrations.

With Australia’s Rhiannan Iffland missing the competition due to an injury in training, Adriana Jimenez has now closed the overall gap to the leader to just 60 points, although it could have been even closer if the Mexican had not made an error on her final dive, finishing in fourth.

Cesilie Carlton, USA: " This was a season of downs for me, so I feel amazing today, I’m ecstatic. The season was terrible for me, so come out and put four dives together, I’m beyond words. I’m so happy! The people here are amazing, the crowd is insane, you see them on the bridge and everywhere. It’s a great atmosphere.
