LONDON — Canada's diving team has captured a second medal at the London Olympics.

Roseline Filion of Laval, Que., and Meaghan Benfeito of Montreal won bronze in the women's 10-metre synchronized event.

China continued to dominate the competition, with Chen Ruolin and Wang Hao earning 368.40 points to win gold.

Paola Espinosa Sanchez and Alejandra Orozco Loza of Mexico took the silver with 343.32.

Filion and Benfeito, who were diving last in the eight-team field, scored 337.62.

The medal comes two days after Emilie Heymans and Jennifer Abel gave Canada its first medal of the Games with a third-place finish in the women's three-metre synchro.

Filion and Benfeito, who are best friends outside the pool, were seventh in the same event four years ago in Beijing.
