Maintaining their form through five highly competitive rounds, Roseline Filion and Meaghan Benfeito finished on the Olympic podium Tuesday, winning a diving bronze medal in the 10-metre synchro.

It’s the second consecutive Games in which Filion and Benfeito found the third step of the podium at the Olympic Games, following the same feat at London 2012.

To win the bronze, Canada had to dramatically come back from fifth place on the final dive to beat North Korea and Great Britain.
