Mexico's Ivan Garcia and German Sanchez went all out on Monday, July 30, with a very difficult dive, but they pulled it off thus assuring themselves the silver medal in the men's 10-meter synchronized platform at the London Olympic Games.

Garcia and Sanchez racked up 468.90 points for second place after Chinese champions Cao Yuan and Zhang Yanquan, who had 486.78, and beating out the U.S. pair of Nicholas McCrory and David Boudia, who took home the bronze with 463.47.

The Chinese and Britons Thomas Daley and Peter Waterfield went out in front early on, while the Mexicans found themselves in last place after their first two obligatory dives.

In their third dive, however, Garcia and Sanchez move up into fifth place with scores of more than 8 points.

That was when they decided to forget they were at the Olympics and they visualized themselves alone with their trainer in their gym in Guadalajara and executed an inward 4 1/2 somersault tuck with a 4.1 degree of difficulty, picking up 95.94 points to vault into second place, with only the Chinese ahead of them.

"We played it because it was the only way to fulfill this dream. We could have failed because we tried something very difficult, but it worked out and here I have the medal," Sanchez told the media.

The silver medal was Mexico's first of the London games and 56th overall.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon congratulated Garcia and Sanchez via Twitter.

"Congratulations to German Sanchez and Ivan Garcia, silver medal in 10-meter synchronized ... Congratulations!" the president wrote.

The pair of divers were also hailed by the governor of their home state of Jalisco, Emilio Gonzalez Marquez.

"Congratulations to @IvanGarciaPollo and to @DiverSanchez for giving Mexico its first silver medal. They are the pride of Jalisco," the governor tweeted.

On July 31, Mexican female Mexican female synchronized divers Paola Espinosa and Alejandra Orozco won silver in the 10-meter platform.

Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop.
