BUDAPEST - China completed a clean sweep of 13 diving gold medals at the FINA World Championships after Yang Jian defended the men's 10m platform title in a roller-coaster final here on Sunday.

The 28-year-old came back from two poor dives in the second and third rounds, after which he ranked seventh, to deliver three excellent dives to hit a title-winning 515.55 points.

Fellow Chinese Yang Hao finished with a bronze with 485.45 points, while Japanese diver Rikuto Tamai took the silver with a 2.55-point advantage over Hao.

"It has been almost one year since we last competed in international competitions, " said Yang Jian. "I could not find the rhythm at the beginning. But I made adjustments in the last couple of dives."

"The Japanese diver performed very well, for most time of the final, I was the one trying to catch up with them," added Jian, who won a silver in the event at Tokyo Olympic Games last year, only 1.96 points behind his teammate Cao Yuan.

Yang Jian chose a dive with 4.1 difficult degrees in his last round, which earned him a game-high 102.50 points to wrap up the victory.

Hundreds of Chinese supporters, wearing red jerseys and waving the national flags, gathered at the Duna Arena, making it a home atmosphere for the Chinese divers.
