USA divers Jessica Parratto and Delaney Schnell about to execute one of their Olympic dives July 27, 2021 in Tokyo.

New Hampshire was represented on the Olympic podium early this morning as Dover native Jessica Parratto took home a silver medal in the women's 10-meter synchronized diving competition.

Parratto, 27, competed alongside partner Delaney Schnell, 20. The pair came in 52 points behind the favored Chinese team, which extended its gold streak to six years.

This is Parratto's second Olympic Games. She competed for the U.S. in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
