China wins 4th & 5th diving golds at worlds


He Zi’s winning margin of 0.10 points was the smallest ever in diving in world championships history on Tuesday as China raked in its fourth and fifth gold medals in six events.

He Zi won the women’s 1-meter springboard by 0.10 points before Qin Kai and He Chong topped the men’s 3-meter synchronized springboard.

He Zi edged Italy’s Tania Cagnotto by executing a flawless final dive to win her second world title in the event. She totaled 307.10 to Cagnotto’s 370 points to reclaim the title she first won in 2007.

In the men’s 3-meter, Russia’s Evgeny Kuznetsov and Ilia Zakharov repeated their silver medal from 2011, and Mexico’s Jahir Ocampo and Rommel Pacheco took bronze.
