Chelsea Davis (US) strikes her face on the diving board while attempting an inward two-and-a-half somersault in the preliminary round of the women's three-meter springboard competition at the FINA World Championships. She required three stitches but otherwise sustained no serious injury. The championships showcase five disciplines: water polo, open water swimming, diving, swimming and synchronized swimming.
