RIO DE JANEIRO -- China easily won its second gold medal in diving at the Rio Olympics, dominating the mens 10-meter synchronized event while showing the rest of the world how to barely make a splash. Wholesale Jordan 3 Sale .Chen Aisen and Lin Yue totaled 496.98 points on Monday, cruising to victory by 39.87 points.American teammates David Boudia and Steele Johnson took silver at 457.11. Tom Daley and Daniel Goodfellow of Britain rallied to claim bronze in 445.45.China is aiming to sweep the eight diving events in Rio de Janeiro for the first time in the Olympics. A day earlier, the Chinese won the womens 3-meter synchro title.We did our best, but I dont think it was perfect, Lin said.Chen and Lin were especially impressive on their final two dives, totaling the most points of any team in both rounds.China, the United States and Britain all performed the same dive in the fifth round, a forward 4 1/2 somersaults tuck that carries one of the highest degrees of difficulty.The Americans went first, scoring 85.47 points. China was next, with Chen and Lin putting on a clinic with a score of 106.56. They plunged into the water off the 33-foot tower with very little splash and earned a perfect 10 for synchronization.Daley and Goodfellow went last, scoring 92.13 and good enough to move the Brits from fifth to third after the German duo of Patrick Hausding and Sascha Klein performed a less difficult dive that earned fewer points and dropped them to fourth.Going into the last round there is always pressure. When its the Olympics, multiply that by a million, Daley said. It was windy, it was cold and we were two points behind the Germans.In the last round, the Americans and Chinese did the same dive, a back 2 1/2 somersaults with 2 1/2 twists pike only slightly less difficult than their previous one.Boudia and Johnson went first, scoring 95.04 points with marks as high as 9.0.Chen and Lin did even better, hitting the water in unison and being rewarded with 9.5s and 9.0s.Lin earned his first gold in the event since 2008, when he and Huo Liang teamed to win synchro platform in their home country. He didnt compete in the event four years ago in London.With lots of Chinese flags and fans in the stands, the crowd booed heartily when it saw the judges marks for Chen and Lin in the fourth round. Fans didnt think the scores ranging from 8.0 to 8.5 were nearly high enough, but it hardly mattered.The mistake we made is that we had a little bit of hesitation during our jump, so we did not handle it very well, Lin said.Chen and Lin were in front from the start of the six-round final and never faltered.Boudia and Johnson controlled second place throughout, leaving only the bronze medal up for grabs. Four years ago in London, Boudia earned bronze in platform synchro with a different partner and gold in the individual 10-meter competition.One of every color, Boudia said. Ive never felt so content and so calm. Youre at the Olympic Games with millions of people watching you, so its a pretty good feeling.Johnson, a 20-year-old diver at Indiana University, was clearly thrilled with winning a medal in his Olympic debut. He and Boudia shared a watery hug after their final dive, knowing they had clinched a spot on the podium. Johnson then covered his eyes with his hand and couldnt stop smiling.In 2009, Johnson struck his head on the platform and was saved from bleeding out by his coach, who jumped in the pool and held his head together. He received 33 stitches and a tube in his head to drain the chlorine.It all worked out in the end, Johnson said, the silver medal around his neck. The fact that Im still alive is just more than I can ask for. Cheap Wholesale Jordan 3 Shoes . Ouellette, from Montreal, already has three Olympic gold medals since joining the team in 1999.
