China’s Wu Minxia could become the first diver to win five Olympic gold medals when she competes in Rio in synchronized 3m springboard.

Minxia’s partnering with Tingmao Shi as she looks to accomplish the aforementioned feat, with seven other tandems look to make sure she doesn’t make history. Among the other competitors are Canada’s Pamela Ware and Jennifer Abel, who finished a distant second to Minzia and Shi at the FINA Diving World Cup in February, and Italy’s Tania Cagnotto and Francesca Dallape.
Minxia and Shi were dominant in February, winning the title by more than 27 points, and they’re expected to put forth a similar performance in Rio Sunday afternoon.
