Malaysia's hopes of boosting its medal tally in the London Olympics drowned at the Aquatics Centre when Bryan Nickson Lomas failed to qualify for the next stage of the men's 10 metre Platform diving competition today.
The National diver secured 19th spot, one spot below the 18 divers who advanced to the semifinal stage that was held at 5pm today.
22-year-old Bryan, from Kuching, Sarawak collected 434.95 points in the six dives, well behind leader, Qiu Bo from China who collected 563.70 and his fellow countryman Lin Yue who finished second with 532.15.
In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Bryan finished 26th out of 28 contestants in the same event with 384.45 points.
Meanwhile Malaysia's standing in the medal tally position dropped from joint 52nd to joint 54th today with just two more days of competition left before the greatest games on earth comes to a close.
The U.S. remain at the top of the leader board with China second and host Great Britain in third position.
