China dominate in Doha

Lausanne (SUI), – The Chinese divers dominated the first leg of the 2009 FINA Diving World Series, held in Doha (QAT) on March 21-22, by conquering all the eight medals on offer. During the two-day competition (organised for the first time in Doha, in the superb Hamad Aquatic Centre), many champions and medallists from the 2008 Olympic Games had the opportunity of meeting once more their main challengers.

In Doha, the logics prevailed, with Ruolin Chen (CHN) winning the women’s 10m platform individual and synchro titles (she is Olympic champion in these events).


The next leg of the 2009 FINA Diving World Series will be held in Changzhou (CHN, March 27-28), then in Sheffield (GBR, April 18-19) and finally in Mexico City (MEX, April 24-25).
