Z.Y. Wang participated in the event at the 2016 Tokyo Olympics, where he placed second to his fellow Chinese diver Xie Siyi.

“I was solely concerned with my own performances during the competition. Do not consider the score or standing of others. You need to keep in mind a few technical details and take the plunge one at a time. This is the strategy I employed during the game, “Added the 21-year-old.

Cao, Z.Y. Wang’s synchronised partner and Olympic and world champion, placed second with a score of 492.85, earning him his thirteenth medal at the Olympics and World Championships. Only Russian diving great Dmitriy Sautin (17) has more medals at these two competitions.

The three-time gold medalist has won a medal at each of the last three Olympic Games and the last five Aquatic World Championships.

The 24-year-old athlete went on to say, “We’re glad that this time we gained back the gold that the Chinese team lost at the Tokyo Olympics.”
