China's Wu Minxia and Shi Tingmao won the first diving gold medal at the world championships on Saturday, earning Wu a record sixth world title in the women's 3-meter synchronized springboard.

The pair's almost flawless execution of all five dives gave them the top total score of 338.40 points.

Italy's Tania Cagnotto and Francesca Dallape claimed silver with 307.80, while Canada's Pamela Ware and Jennifer Abel took bronze with 292.08.

Wu has won nine world or Olympic gold medals in the 3-meter synchronized springboard. The only major title to escape her was the 2005 world championship when she didn't compete in the event.
