OLYMPICS / Barcelona 1992 - Round-Up: Diving: Sun shines brilliantly
Wednesday 05 August 1992
Sun Shuwei, the 16-year-old world champion, produced a dive of the rarest brilliance to clinch the gold in the men's platform event.
Four judges awarded him the perfect 10 (a lot rarer than in gymnastics) and he totalled 99.96 points, by far the highest score of any diver in any competition, for his reverse three and a half somersaults.
Rob Morgan, of Britain, put in an excellent series to climb from 11th place to fifth overall.
