Fu Mingxia is introversive to strangers but extroversive to close friends. She trains very hard and is good in mental quality. Fu Mingxia left home at age 9 to train in Beijing. The sacrifices began to pay off 12 days before her 12th birthday when Fu earned the platform-diving gold medal at the 1990 Goodwill Games. Six months later, she became the youngest diver ever to win gold at the World Championships. That prompted the international governing body to rule divers must turn 14 by the year of Olympic, World Championship or World Cup competition to participate.
