A GRACEFUL exhibition of total superiority saw Gao Min (right) bring China their second women's diving gold medal when she won the springboard title by a huge margin yesterday.

The defending champion and double world champion won by a clear 60 points after producing the day's two highest scoring dives with her last two efforts to provide a spectacular climax to the competition.

First she scored 74.700 for an inward two and half somersaults and she finished with a bewildering reverse one and a half somersault with two and a half twists for 73.950.
