Jamaican Yona Knight-Wisdom has booked his spot in the Men's 3M diving final at the FINA Canada Cup, in Gatineau, Canada this afternoon.

Knight-Wisdom placed third in the Group A semi final with a dive scoring 398.10, finishing behind Canadian Francois Imbeau-Dulac , who had a score of 419.05, and New Zealander Liam Stone, who scored 400.05.

The British based Olympian, who was disappointed with his previous dive which landed him a score of 382.85 in the first round, said although not quite there yet, he's getting closer to his target of 400.

"My new dive improved from preliminary to semi final so that's positive," Knight-Wisdom said. "Hopefully that will continue into the final. The rest of my dives were solid."

The final takes place on Sunday at 11:10am Jamaica time.
