If things go as expected, China will leave Rio later this month with gold medals in all eight diving disciplines.
For longtime star Wu Minxia, who will compete in the first event -- women's synchronized 3m springboard this Sunday, Aug. 7, it's a chance to etch her name in the annals of Olympic history.
"I am looking forward to perfection on my competition day," Wu told the South China Morning Post this week.
Perfection on Sunday would net Wu a handful of records:
Wu, who has won medals in all six Olympic events in which she has competed in her career, took home two of China's six gold medals from London.
Sunday could be her last chance for Olympic glory. The veteran contemplated retirement following the 2012 London Games and is only competing in one event this year -- the synchronized 3m springboard.
You'd have to wager $14 on Wu and her partner Shi Tingmao in order to win just $1, according to betting website Bovada.lv. Suffice it to say that her odds are still very strong, especially considering China has not lost a world or Olympic title in the women's synchronized springboard event since the 2000 Sydney Games.
