China win every gold medal available as FINA Diving World Series concludes in Dubai
China won the final three gold medals on offer at the International Swimming Federation (FINA) Diving World Series in Dubai to ensure the country won all ten titles available at the Hamdan Sports Complex.
The country completely dominated the event in the United Arab Emirates with their joy continuing in the women’s three metres individual springboard on the concluding day of action.
Gold went to quadruple World Championship winner Shi Tingmao, with the 24-year-old registering 392.25 points.
That proved more than enough to beat Canada’s silver medallist Jennifer Abel, who finished on 378.20, while China also took bronze as Wang Han tallied 374.40.
In the men’s 10m individual platform, Yang Hao was China’s winner.
The 18-year-old, a double gold medallist in front of his home fans at the 2014 Youth Olympics in Nanjing, topped the pile as he scored 569.30.
It was a close battle with his compatriot Chen Aisen, however, who finished just behind on 569.15.
Victor Minibaev of Russia claimed the bronze medal after his dives earned him 530.85.
In the final event of the competition, China’s Hao collected another gold medal as he teamed up with Wang Han to take victory with a score of 337.50.
There was a second silver medal for Abel after she joined with François Imbeau-Dulac to register 323.46.
Russia gained another bronze thanks to Kristina Ilinykh and Nikita Shleikher who totalled 302.43 points.
