She was just over 14 years old (130 days) when she won the women's 10m platform at last year's Tokyo Olympic Games. She was the second youngest to win an Olympic title in this event, following China's Fu Mingxia at Barcelona 1992 at 13 years and 346 days.

Only two female divers have won the world title of 10m platform as the reigning Olympic champion: Ulrika Knape-Lindberg (Sweden) in 1973 and Fu in 1994.

This is the second gold for Chinese divers at the Budapest worlds since Cao Yuan and Wang Zongyuan won the men's 3m synchronized on Sunday.

Earlier on Monday, Wang and Cao ended on top of the men's 3m springboard semifinals with 547.95 and 482.50 points respectively.
