INDIVIDUAL COMEBACK
Her bronze medal in the individual 3m springboard event at the 2018 World Cup in Wuhan, People's Republic of China, was her first major individual medal since her bronze in the same event at the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona, Spain. "I haven't got an individual [medal] since 2013. I'm so happy about how the whole day went. I've been working on my consistency in training and also in competition and I did exactly that."
