Chinese Cao Yuan and Wang Zongyuan won the men's 3m synchronized final on the nineth competition day of the 19th FINA World Championships here on Sunday.

Cao/Wang received a total of 459.18 points, ahead of Jack Laugher/Anthony Harding from Britain (451.71) and Lars Rudiger/Timo Barthel from Germany (406.44).

Wang Zongyuan is a stud‍ent of Wuhan Sports University. The 20-year-old Wang is already an Olympic champion. He won the gold at the Tokyo Games in the same discipline paired with Xie Siyi.

"I'm pretty happy with the result today. This is my first international event after winning the Olympic gold. And it's my first time to compete in the synchro diving in World Championships. The gold means a lot to me. A little bit of pity in the final attempt, but anyway, we can do better next time," Wang explained.
