Peter Waterfield says the dive that doomed Britain's chances of gold in the 10-meter platform was essentially his fault.
Waterfield and partner Thomas Daley were in first place halfway through the men's synchronized 10-meter platform. Then Waterfield says he kicked his feet out too far on their fourth dive, throwing it off and digging Britain too big a hole to climb out of.
Daley says the reverse 3 1/2 somersault is a dive the pair felt very comfortable trying.
"Normally it's one of our best dives," Daley says. "Today it just didn't seem right."
