China dominates diving competitions in Budapest

Mon, Jul. 17, 2017
CAIRO – 17 July 2017: China started its participation in the 2017 FINA World Championships with gold medals in diving competitions, keeping its habit of winning diving medals.

Peng Jianfeng won the men’s 1m diving event, and his Chinese teammate He Chao got the silver medal, while Italian diver Giovanni Tocci won the bronze medal.

"My movements in the fourth round were my very best, so after that I lost my spirit; I took it a bit too easy. That's why I didn't get the level I wanted; I didn't have the real feeling I wished to have, but finally I was able to get the result I wanted," Jianfeng told reporters after winning the gold medal.

China also dominated the women’s competitions. Chinese partners Ren Qian and Si Yajji won the women’s synchronized 10m gold medal, the silver medal went to Rae Kim Mi and Kuk Hyang Kim from the People’s Republic of Korea, and Malaysian girls Jun Hoong Cheong and Pandelela Pamg took bronze.

The men’s synchronized 10m, and the women’s synchronized 3m will be held tomorrow.

The FINA World Championships is being held in Budapest, Hungary from July 14-30, 2017.
