Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Britain clinched gold in the men‘s 3-metre springboard synchronized competition at the Rio Olympics on Wednesday, ending China‘s dreams of a golden diving sweep at the Games.

Jack Laugher and Chris Mears took the lead in the third of six rounds in the event and never looked back, finishing first with 454.32 points.

The United States‘ Sam Dorman and Mike Hixon took silver with 450.21 points, while China‘s Qin Kai and Cao Yuan came in a distant third for bronze with 443.70 points.

China had won the paired competition in the two prior Olympics and Qin could have become the first diver to earn three gold medals in the event had he won.

The Rio divers continued to use an unusually green pool, which has been blamed on water treatment problems, but also had to contend with drizzling rain and wind gusts in the stadium which is not fully sheltered from the elements.
