Pan American diving: a though battle between McKay and Orozco

Although the North American athlete arrived at Santiago 2023 in search of her first Pan American gold, in the preliminaries, she could only finish in third place behind the Canadian Caely McKay and her compatriot Gabriela Agundez.

The Calgary-born athlete, along with the Mexican Agundez, were considered favorites to win the event, so they emerged as early candidates to challenge Orozco for the first place, when competitions are just starting in this Pan American Games.

The Canadian McKay totaled 343.95 points in her five dives, with scores of 75, 67.20, 73.60, 57.75 and 70.40. Agundez totaled 333.75 (67.50, 84.15, 67.20, 42.90 and 72); and Orozco averaged 320.10 (64.50, 59.20, 65.60, 58.80 and 72).
