Ones to watch: Brittany Viola and Katie Bell currently lead the competition heading into today's 10m platform finals.

Bell has struggled in the preliminaries but returned to the semifinals with her A-game and performed consistantly throughout to climb the ranks and finish in second. "After prelims, I went home and took a nap and started my routine as a new day this evening," Bell said following the semifinals. "I didn't feel like I had to do anything special, I just needed to be relaxed."

What happens: The two divers who score the highest points in each individual event will journey to London.
