Diving hat-trick for Wu

NZ Newswire Updated July 30, 2012, 4:46 am

China's Wu Minxia secured her place in Olympic history with a hat-trick of springboard synchro titles when she took gold with He Zi at today's opening diving event at the Aquatics Centre.

Wu cemented her place as one of the greatest female divers of all time as she also drew level with former synchro partner Guo Jingjing, who she teamed up with to win the past two Olympic crowns, with a record six medals at the Games.

The 26-year-old is set to surpass that mark next week when she goes head-to-head with Zi in the individual springboard.

They were comfortable winners, leading after all five rounds to finish with a gap of 24.30 points from nearest rivals Abigail Johnston and Kelci Bryant from the United States.

Canada's Emilie Heymans and Jennifer Abel took bronze to ensure Heymans became the first diver to win a medal at four consecutive Olympics.
