Russia’s Victor Minibaev secured men’s 10 metres platform honours on the final day of the International Swimming Federation Diving Grand Prix in Rostock.
Minibaev was locked in a close battle with China’s Song Yuan throughout the competition at the Neptun-Schwimmhalle.
He held his nerve in the final round, however, to edge his rival to gold, with 483.75 points proving enough to top the standings.
Song was narrowly behind on 482.95 but was left settling for second place.
The podium was completed by Ukraine’s Oleksii Sereda, who scored 453.75 to win the bronze medal.
Sereda’s team-mates Stanislav Oliferchyk and Victoriya Kesar claimed victory in the mixed 3m synchronised springboard event.
