Ripon's Jack Laugher takes 2nd Commonwealth gold

Jack laugher competes at the commonwealth games

Ripon diver Jack Laugher will go for gold at the Commonwealth Games on Australia's Gold Coast.

He's appearing in the men's 3-metre springboard final this morning, fresh from defending his 1-metre springboard title yesterday.

Jack is the favourite going into today's final.

We'll keep you updated on how he gets on.



It's safe to say, Jack dominated that final.

He's successfully upgraded his silver from four years ago with a score of 519.40 and now has two golds from this Commonwealth Games.

Well done!


Absolutely fantastic! It's gold again!

Jack Laugher, take a bow...


Jack Laugher is on fire in this 3m final.

Two near-perfect dives and he's just one dive away from taking gold.


So far, so good at the halfway stage...


After 2 of 6 dives, Jack is right where he wants to be.

He's lying in 1st position, ahead of the Australian James Connor.


Despite being favourite, Jack only finished 5th in qualify for today's final.

Part of the reason was due to this failed dive, which has quickly been picked up on social media.

We're told conditions were very different in qualifying and the dive shouldn't have too much impact on the final.


Can he make it 2 from 2?

The men's 3-metre springboard final is underway this morning in Australia.

Here's a reminder of how Ripon's Jack Laugher defended his title yesterday:
