Jack Laugher seals his second Commonwealth Games gold in two days as England claim victory in the men’s synchro 3m springboard final

England’s Jack Laugher made it two gold medals in two days as he and Ant Harding were victorious in the men’s synchro 3m springboard final on Friday morning.

The pair dominated the final, sealing it in style with a 3.9 difficulty – the forward two and a half somersaults with three twists.

Laugher, 27, successfully defended his 1m springboard title for a second time on Thursday as team-mate Jordan Houlden took bronze.

He admitted he felt the pressure after a high-scoring performance saw him successfully defend his Commonwealth Games one-metre springboard title.

The 27-year-old claimed gold in 2014 at Glasgow and on the Gold Coast in 2018 but was able to seal this one in front of a home crowd.

Laugher said: ‘[I’m feeling] great, yeah loads of pressure coming into here trying to defend that title that I’ve had for what, eight years now?

‘It’s a great, great performance, very steady, a few mistakes here and there but really, really happy with everything, and to do it in front of a home crowd obviously makes it a little more sweeter.’
