Balleza and Sánchez could not close their performance in the JCC with a flourish. They got off on the right foot, however, finishing in first place after the first two rounds, thanks to their neat executions in two routine dives (2.0 degrees of difficulty in and out). Later, they had problems in their most complicated turns and managed to scratch bronze in their last jump, on their backs with two and a half turns and one and a half turns in position B, which earned them 66.24 points. With a total of 328.95, they were below the duos from the Dominican Republic (Frandiel Gómez and José Ruvalcaba, with 328.95 units) and from Colombia (Sebastián Villa and Leonardo Silva, gold winner with a sum of 366.15).

The Mexican team was even able to extend their harvest, but Carolina Mendoza and Abril Navarro concluded the women’s final from the 3m springboard with rungs 5 ​​and 6, respectively.
