Double silver for Wiens

Rylan Wiens won a pair of medals in Birmingham, claiming silver in both the men’s 10-metre platform and men’s 10-m synchro alongside teammate Nathan Zsombor-Murray. Wiens opened the Games with the medal in synchro, as he and Zsombor-Murray continued their immediate success together as teammates. Since uniting in June, the pair have won both a World Championship bronze and Commonwealth silver.
