RIO DE JANEIRO -- There wont be a golden sweep in the green Olympic diving pool.Britain upset China to win the mens synchronized 3-meter springboard Wednesday, with Jack Laugher and Chris Mears totaling 454.32 points for their countrys first Olympic diving gold in history.When the scores came up and it obviously said that we had won I was still like, `No, someone is playing a horrible prank on me, Mears said. It was crazy, absolutely crazy, but Im absolutely buzzing.American duo Sam Dorman and Mike Hixon took silver with 450.21. Chinas Cao Yuan and Qin Kai settled for bronze with 443.70, ending their countrys bid to sweep the eight diving medals at the Rio de Janeiro Games.The Chinese had won the first three synchro events.On a dreary, windy day at Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre, a steady drizzle fell throughout the six-round final. The pools water was green for the second straight day, with games officials struggling to correct what they say is decreased alkalinity thats causing the change from clear blue to murky green.Being from the U.K., were very much used to rain, wind and all that kind of stuff, Laugher said.Qin was trying to win a third straight 3-meter synchro gold medal with his third different partner. But the 30-year-old Chinese -- oldest in the contest and owner of five Olympic medals -- faltered in the third round, dropping his team to second behind the British.I am the reason I did not do well, Qin said through a translator. I wasnt strong enough in my mindset. I didnt really focus enough.China fell to third in the next round, but moved up to second after its fifth dive. Cao and Qin earned scores ranging from 8.5 to 9.0, leaving them within 2.64 points of Britain heading into the last round. Laugher and Mears nailed the toughest dive any team attempted in the final, scoring 86.58 points in the fifth round.The Brits, Americans and Chinese all attempted the same dive to close the contest.Dorman and Hixon went first, scoring 98.04 to take over first, with the British and Chinese still to come. The Americans endured a five-minute wait while Mexicos duo, who competed in front of them, sought a do-over.Leading into the last dive, having the Mexicans try to re-dive was beneficial, Dorman said. Having them distract us and me wondering what was going on took a lot off my mind.Jahir Ocampo and Rommel Pacheco complained to officials after a temporary light on scaffolding above the pool suddenly turned on while they were starting their dive.At first, it appeared the Mexicans would be allowed to go again, and they climbed back on the boards. Hixon had already started up the stairs, thinking it was his turn before going back down to wait.Ocampo and Pacheco stood on the boards waiting for the judges to give the go signal. It never came. They werent allowed another attempt. It wouldnt have affected the medal finish, but might have moved the Mexicans up to fourth instead of fifth among the eight teams.We were going to do it again, but when we were up there waiting for the whistle to jump, they announced our scores and we had to come down again to protest, Pacheco said.He said he thought Mexico would protest to FINA, the sports world governing body.They might admit that they were wrong, but it wont change anything, Pacheco said.After Hixon celebrated his teams execution by punching the water, the Brits grabbed the top spot back, although at 91.20, they didnt score as high as the Americans.GB did an unbelievable last dive as well, Hixon said. We sort of made them earn it, but they absolutely did.On Chinas last dive, Qin struggled again, failing to enter the water straight on a forward 4+ somersaults dive carrying a 3.8 degree of difficulty that scored 83.22.Its a lot of pressure and yes, we were a little bit nervous, Cao said.China failed to win gold in the event for the first time since the 2004 Athens Games.---Associated Press Writer Carlos Rodriguez contributed to this report.

Les Miles plans to coach football again.The former LSU coach, who was fired Sunday after his team got off to a disappointing 2-2 start, made that clear Monday on Dan Patricks radio show in Miles first public comments since his dismissal.I dont golf, Miles told Patrick. I play no tennis. I enjoy shooting the gun; I dont necessarily like to point it at animals. I play cards, not very well. But what I have done for probably 12 to 14 hours a day for the last number of years is coach football. So I would have a difficult time not being involved in the game and not being a coach.Miles boasts the highest winning percentage in modern-day LSU history (.770) and sits second on the schools all-time wins list with a record of 114-34. In his 11-plus seasons in the SEC, Miles teams claimed a 2007 BCS championship, played for another national title in 2011 and won three conference titles.However, the program has not lived up to its lofty expectations in recent years. The 2016 squad was a preseason top-10 team, but LSU fell out of the national polls after Saturdays 18-13 loss to Auburn dropped the Tigers to 2-2.Miles, who will turn 63 in November, said LSU athletic director Joe Alleva informed him of his firing at a face-to-face meeting Sunday. Miles said he did not fight the decision to end his LSU run in its 12th season.It was beyond fighting, Miles said. The enjoyment of being here, the enjoyment of the community, the experiences that my familys had, its too important to me to fight over. Its history. Its what we are. If they see that a change makes the Tigers better, then I am for them.Although Miles said a cultural divide within LSUs athletic department led to his exit -- school power brokers almost fired him in November in a highly public tug-of-war -- he thanked Alleva for the opportunity to address the Tigers at a team meeting Sunday.I recognize in those decisions so many times, you can see where its not necessary that the ex-head coach says goodbye, Miles said. But they gave me that opportunity, and I took advantage of it and did not stay long, but wished them well. They deserve the bestt.dddddddddddd I think Ed Orgeron will do a great job for them, and I exited about as fast as I could.Meanwhile, at his introductory news conference on Monday, Orgeron vowed to tweak the program in several ways -- most notably an offense that was bogged down in recent years under Miles and departed offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.Were going to spread the ball out a little bit, do some different things, change the style of play, Orgeron said. Theres a lot of things on offense that weve done well running the football. We want to have a different passing game, we want to be more creative, find ways for the quarterback to get the ball down the field throwing it.Obviously we know that people load up the box on Leonard [Fournette] and Derrius Guice, Orgeron continued. We want to put the ball in our playmakers hands. We want to make short, easy throws for the quarterback and move the ball down the field, score points. Youve got to score points in our business.Miles has been in coaching since 1980, when he became a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Michigan. His weekends have been consumed with football ever since, with assistant coaching stops at Colorado, Michigan, Oklahoma State and with the Dallas Cowboys, and head-coaching stints at Oklahoma State (2001-04) and LSU (2005-16).This will be Miles first unscheduled fall weekend off in decades, and he said he isnt sure what he will do. His oldest son, Manny, is a walk-on quarterback at North Carolina, and Miles suggested he might make an impromptu trip to see the Tar Heels visit Florida State on Saturday.I think Ill see if my son can arrange a ticket, Miles said. I can tell you one thing, Im going to be rooting for the LSU Tigers, Im going to be rooting for the Tar Heels, Im going to be rooting for the Cowboys, and Im going to be rooting for Michigan.And then when Ben [his youngest son, a Nebraska commit] ends up at the school that hes committed to, then Im going to root for them. Its just the way it is. ' ' '
