Veteran athletes thrive: China asserted dominance from the start, claiming the mixed 3- and 10-meter team event title early on. The formidable duo of Wang and Long Daoyi continued China’s winning streak by clinching gold in the men’s 3-meter synchronized final, while Chen Yuxi and Quan Hongchan secured victory in the women’s 10-meter synchronized event by earning nine perfect scores.  
Individual champs stand out: In the individual categories, 2022 and 2023 World Champion Chen Yiwen and 2024 World Champion Yang Hao added to China’s gold medal tally in the women’s 3-meter springboard and men’s 10-meter platform categories, respectively.
Chen, who lost her world title last month, said that she was “not really happy about the result in Doha, so I’m still trying to get better. I’m still trying to make myself more stable on my five dives.”
