Oliver Dingley, Ireland's first Olympic diver in 68 years, has advanced from the preliminary round of the men's 3m springboard event in Rio.
The pool returned to its traditional blue colour but there was a hint of green with Dingley producing a very impressive display to qualify in 13th place.
The top 18 competitors advanced and despite a shaky dive in Round 5, the former Great Britain diver was among them with a score of 399.80.
The semi-final takes place tomorrow at 2pm Irish time.
