Zakharov shocks Chinese for springboard gold
08.08.2012 23:16

Ilya Zakharov poses with his gold medal

Russia’s Ilya Zakharov has pulled off the impossible by beating the Chinese divers in the men’s 3-meter springboard final at the London Olympics.
Zakharov was trailing to two-time Olympic champion, Qin Kai of China, before his final attempt.
He needed a perfect jump to move into first spot and the 21-year-old managed to come up with one, getting 104.50 points for his forward four and a half somersault.
The Russia topped the standing with 555.90 points, while favorite Qin Kai scored 541.75 points to settle for a disappointing silver.
It’s a second medal for the Olympic debutant after he finished in second in the synchronized 3m springboard together with partner Evgeny Kuznetsov.
The bronze medal also went to China, with He Chong completing the podium in the event.
Zaharov’s success is a significant achievement for Russian sport as the last time the country’s athletes won Olympic gold on 3-meter springboard was the home games in Moscow 1980.
