    At the FINA World Swimming Championships in Shanghai on Sunday, the Chinese men's synchronized diving team took the gold medal. And it wasn't just a win for the team, but continued success for one Chinese athlete.

    Chinese pair Qiu Bo and Huo Liang won gold in the men's 10-meter synchronized platform diving on Sunday (July 17) at the FINA World Swimming Championships in Shanghai.

    That win echoed the success of China's women's 3-meter synchronized springboard diving team, which also took gold.

    Huo and Qiu won the gold medal with 480.03 points, while German divers won the silver with 443.01 points, and Ukrainian divers took the bronze with 435.36.

    This medal marked Huo Liang's third successive world title in the diving event.

    21-year-old Huo had already won two world championships and gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics with his former partner, Lin Yue. He had only started training with Qiu two months before the competition, after Lin was forced out with an injury.
