Young GB diver Millie Fowler has admitted her disappointment after failing to land a spot on the podium in tonight's 1m final at the European Games.
The 17-year-old failed to follow in the footsteps of teammates James Heatly, Ross Haslam and Lois Toulson in bringing home a diving medal tonight despite a promising performance in the day's earlier prelim session, where she placed second.
In the final however, she stumbled with her last and most ambitious dive, the forward 2-1/2 somersault, to fall to sixth on the leaderboard.
Shortly afterwards, Sports Mole caught up with a tearful Fowler to find out where it went wrong.

How are you feeling after that performance?
"Disappointed and a little bit frustrated, but there's still a lot of positives I can take from it. I don't want to let one dive ruin my whole look back on these Games. I know I can do that dive better but things like that happen to everyone."
You mentioned the positives - you finished second in the prelims earlier today. That must have felt pretty good.
"I wasn't expecting anything like that. I got a new PB in the prelim as well. I can take a lot away from this whole experience, so there's a lot of things I can use as motivation. I can learn from what I've done today."
And it's not lost completely - you've got another opportunity tomorrow with the other Millie (Haffety) in the synchro. How's training been going for that?
"It's been going good. Synchro has been a good event for us all year, so I'm definitely looking forward to it. I appreciate the fact that I have another opportunity to get in there and show people what I can do."
One other thing to take away from this must surely be the Village experience, too.
"It's incredible. It's just so much bigger and more exciting than I thought it was going to be. That's definitely going to be a highlight of the whole Games. Being in the Village, staying with the whole of Team GB and being part of a team that has people from more than one sport is amazing."
