Video - China's He Chong

China's He Chong produced a dominant display as he dived to the gold medal in the men's 3m springboard.

He scored 11 perfect marks of 10.0 in the six-round final, totalling 572.90 and giving China its fourth consecutive Olympic title in the event.

Canada's Alexandre Despatie took his second Olympic silver in a row with 536.65, while He's compatriot Qin Kai earned the bronze with 530.10.

China have now won all six diving golds in Beijing, equalling their 2004 tally.

With two events still to come - the women's and men's 10m - the Chinese are aiming for a clean sweep to better their record haul in Athens four years ago.
