Biography

The 2003 Worlds had Aleksandr Dobroskok (RUS) winning this event with China’s [Peng Bo], champion at the 2002 Asian Games and the 2001 and 2004 Universiade, in second. Another challenger was felt to be Canada’s Alexandre Despatie, 2004 World Cup champ and 2004 World Champion on the platform. The leader going into the final was Russia’s redoubtable Dmitry Sautin, but Peng outperformed everyone on the final dives, winning easily, aided by his second dive, a forward 3½ sommie that earned him five perfect 10s. Despatie came on for the silver medal, edging out Sautin. Dobroskok struggled in the semi-final round, where scores carried over to the final, and he was never able to catch up, placing seventh.
