Located in central London, the China House, which is a sort of hub for Chinese Olympic athelets, welcomed two Olympic diving champions on Monday.

Wu Minxia and He Zi began their success in London in the women's 3-meter springboard synchronized event, Wu achieving a hat-trick of synchronized springboard titles - the former two at Athens and Beijing with former partner Guo Jingjing.

Wu completed another medal-winning performance at the Aquatics Center on Aug 5, gaining her first individual gold medal in the three-meter springboard event.

He Zi, a 21-year-old rising star in Chinese springboard diving, also added a silver medal in the three-meter individual event.

The Chinese diving team has delivered five gold medals so far and remains on course for a clean sweep of all eight gold medals in Olympic diving at London 2012.
