Chinese divers won all the three events they competed on Friday at the Bangkok University Games.

Olympic champion Peng Bo started the day with the victory in the men's 3m springboard, with teammate and world champion Luo Yutong pocketing the silver.

Hours later, Peng paired Zhang Xinhua, the overnight winner of the men's 1m springboard, to nail down the men's 3m springboard synchronized gold.

Olympic silver-medalist on women's 10m platform Lao Lishi had a steady performance to take the gold medal of the event in Bangkok.

Paola Espinosa of Mexico, who finished second in the 10m platform, won the women's 10m platform synchronized with teammate Tatiana Ortiz in a game that only five pairs competed.

The Chinese diving team, who won 10 out of 12 gold medals in the last version of the Games in Izmir, Turkey, in 2005, collected four golds after six events in Bangkok.

It is on the way to accomplish another 10-gold haul as the star- studded Chinese squad proved it is in a class of its own.

Peng and Luo made the 3m springboard a matchup inside the Chinese after the second round, exchanging the lead several times before Peng grabbed the victory with an eye-catching 91.80-point jump on the last attempt.

There was no challenge from their opponents as Peng/Zhang led from the very beginning to end to win the 3m springboard synchronized.

Lao expected to have a tight game against Espinosa, who led in the preliminary and semifinals, but two poor rounds of the Mexican girl left Lao alone on the top of the board for the trophy.
