The judges rewarded him with the highest dive score in the men's competition, which is his third podium finish of the season and fourth place in the World Series standings.

It is another surprise podium finish for the Spaniard, and he is able to claim third place in the overall standings, which secures him a spot in the permanent line-up for the 2024 season.
