Tucsonan Delaney Schnell finish fourth in synchronized 10-meter at Pan American Games

TORONTO - Samantha “Murphy” Bromberg (Bexley, Ohio/Austin, Texas) and Delaney Schnell (Tucson, Ariz.) finished fourth in the women’s synchronized 10-meter contest Monday at the Pan American Games. They scored 287.82 points, just .09 points out of the bronze medal in their competitive debut as a synchro team.

“It was the first time we’ve ever competed together, and I’m happy with how we did. Our coaches agree that we’re a good pair. I live in Texas and she’s in Arizona, so we’re going to schedule some time to keep training together as we look towards World Cup Trials,” Bromberg said.

Canada’s Roseline Filion and Meaghan Benfeito, the 2012 Olympic bronze medalists, won gold with 316.89 points. Brazil’s Ingrid De Oliveira and Giovanna Pedroso were second at 291.36, while 2012 Olympic silver medalists Paola Espinosa and Alejandra Orozco of Mexico scored 287.91 to edge the U.S. team for the final spot on the podium.

“It was really close and that was tough, but it’s just going to make us work that much harder as we focus on the big picture,” Schnell said. 

Both divers also competed in the individual 10-meter contest earlier in the games, with Bromberg finishing fifth and Schnell eighth.

Schnell was originally slated to dive with 2008 Olympian Mary Beth Dunnichay at the Pan Am Games, but Dunnichay withdrew due to injury last month.
