Victory for China's Chen in women's diving

China’s Chen Roulin successfully defended her Olympic women’s 10-metre platform at the Aquatics Centre tonight.

She had been untouchable in the opening two qualification rounds and so it proved again, immediately stamping her authority with an opening 10, en route to 422.30.

Sixteen-year-old Australian Brittany Broben was Chen’s closest challenger but even then she was still a massive 55.80 points in her wake.

Pandelela Rinong Pamg took bronze for Malaysia as she edged out a tight pack behind her with a score of 359.20.

Victory for Chen was her fourth Olympic gold medal, and second of these Games after she teamed with Wang Hao to win the platform synchro last week.
