Jamaican diver Yona Knight-Wisdom is in danger of not making the final of the men's 3m springboard competition at the Olympic Games.

Knight-Wisdom occupied 16th position out of 18 divers with a total of 168.90 points after three of his six dives in the semi-final.

The American Mike Hixon led the standings with a total of 243.60 after his three dives.

Twelve of the 18 divers will advance to the finals of the event scheduled for this evening.

Knight-Wisdom, who was born in the United Kingdom, is the first man to represent Jamaica and the Caribbean in a diving competition at the Olympics.
