Pamela Ware endures forgettable outing at Tokyo Olympics 2020

Canada’s Pamela Ware arrived in Tokyo with an optimistic attitude and a hunger for glory. But she will returning back home with a feeling of unfinished business. Considering how her Olympic dream came to an abrupt end on the weekend, we aren’t too surprised.

Here’s what the 28-year old said after her disappointing 0.0 effort at the Tokyo Olympic Stadium which saw her fail to qualify for the diving championship finals.

“Well, I jumped in the pool. Honestly, I think I’m still in shock right now. I’m kind of emotionless, which is really weird for me because I usually act on my emotions really quickly. But I think that if I would have done the dive, I could have possibly hurt myself,” Ware said via CBC.

Ware concluded her day with a total of 245.10. She slipped from fourth to ninth place after her penultimate attempt. But her disastrous failed dive in her final attempt meant the end of her Olympic journey in 2021. That served as a shocker considering she came in at fourth place in the preliminary round, just a day prior. Talk about bad luck, eh?
