China wins mixed 3-meter springboard diving at worlds

KAZAN, Russia (AP) -- China dominated the first ever mixed three-meter springboard diving event at the world championships on Sunday.

The experienced Wang Han and her 17-year-old partner Yang Hao scored an unbeatable 339.90 points, posting the best-scoring dives in three of the five rounds as each of their rivals made mistakes.

Second place at the Aquatics Palace went to the Canadian duo of Jennifer Abel and Francois Imbeau-Dulac, who started slowly but snatched silver with an 80.58 final dive -- the highest score of the competition -- for a total 317.01.

That was just enough to beat Italy's 17-time European champion Tania Cagnotto and her partner Maicol Verzotto on 315.30.

The men's 10-meter platform later Sunday is the final diving event of the championships.
