Mitcham hits head at diving nationals
19:46 AEST Thu Dec 13 2012

Olympic gold medallist Matthew Mitcham says he'll heed a rudimentary lesson after hitting his head on a pool deck at the Australian diving championships.

The 2008 Beijing 10m platform champion was taken to hospital for precautionary scans after banging his head when he fell while rushing to join fellow finalists for the 3m springboard event at Brisbane's Chandler Aquatic Centre on Thursday.

He was later released when the scans came back clear.

"I just ran into the pool and I was just wearing flip-flops, hit a patch of water and fell onto my back," he told AAP.

"My back's a little bit sore, my neck is sore but other than that I'm fine."

Earlier he tweeted: "I feel I should also say the accident was entirely my fault for my reckless disregard of the "no running on pool deck" rule. Lesson: LEARNT!"

The 24-year-old had won the 1m platform final on Wednesday.

James Connor went on to win the 3m event on Thursday with a score of 409.20 ahead of fellow Victorians Josh Kehagias (373.80) and Darcy Taylor (367.65).

Brittany Broben was a comfortable winner in the women's 10m final.

She scored 385.45, almost 20 points more than her Olympic silver medal performance in London.

Queenslanders Emily Boyd (295.60) and Lara Tarvit (280.50) were second and third respectively.
