Wu Minxia of China has become the first five-time Olympic diving gold medalist. She and teammate Shi Tingmao took the gold in the women’s synchronized 3m springboard event in Rio on Sunday. She is also the woman who holds most Olympic diving medals and the oldest woman to win an Olympic diving gold medal. She’s 30.
Chen Aisen and Lin Yue made it a perfect two-for-two for China in Olympic diving on Monday afternoon, running away with the gold medal in the men's synchronized 10m platform event at the Maria Lenk Aquatic Center in Rio de Janeiro.
