China scoops 3 golds on second day of Rio 2016

Hits:  UpdateTime:2016-08-08 15:46:31

The Chinese team scooped three gold medals on the second day of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games after

failing to open an account on the first day.

China won its first gold medal at the Rio Summer Olympics on Sunday when Zhang Mengxue was successful

in the women's 10m air pistol event.

Zhang, 25, from Jinan, Shandong province, reached the final by finishing in seventh place in qualification.

Her performance helped lift the gloom after Chinese competitors failed to win any gold medals on

Saturday, the first full day of competition.

Chinese tend to view first-day gold medals as an auspicious sign.

But to the surprise of many in Rio on Saturday, Chinese competitors missed out on all four opportunities to

strike gold - the women's 10m air rifle, men's 10m air pistol, women's epee, and most important, the

men's 400m freestyle swimming in which national star Sun Yang was defending the title he won at the

London Olympics.

China had to settle for two silvers and three bronzes instead. It was the first time since the 2000 Sydney

Olympics that the nation had failed to win a gold medal on the first full day of competition.

After Zhang's success in winning the first gold medal, China secured the first diving gold medal, the

second in all, when Wu Minxia and Shi Tingmao won the women's synchronized 3m springboard.

The pair lived up to its billing as favorite with an overall score of 345.60 points from five dives, some

31.77 points ahead of silver medalists Tania Cagnotto and Francesca Dallape of Italy.

The result at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Center continued China's remarkable sequence of results in the

event. The Asian nation has won every world and Olympic title in the women's synchronized springboard

since the 2000 Sydney Games.

The performance also secured a raft of records for veteran Wu.

The 30-year-old has now won the most Olympic diving medals by a woman, surpassing compatriot Guo

JingJing with seven podium finishes.

She also became the oldest woman to win an Olympic diving medal, overtaking the USA's Micki King,

who was 28 when she won the springboard title in 1972.

In addition, Wu equaled the record held by Canada's Emilie Heymans for diving medals in the most

Olympic Games (four).

Long Qingquan, a gold medalist at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, lifted 170kg in the jerk for a world

record total of 307kg to take the men's 56kg weightlifting gold medal, helping Team China finish

the second competition day with three gold medals.
