LONDON (AP) - China swept the synchronized diving events at the London Olympics, winning the men's 3-meter springboard to put the country halfway toward taking all the gold medals.

Qin Kai and Luo Yutong led all six rounds of Wednesday's final, totaling 477.00 points. It was Qin's second straight Olympic title, having won the event four years ago in Beijing with a different partner.

Ilya Zakharov and Evgeny Kuznetsov of Russia took the silver at 459.63.

Kristian Ipsen and Troy Dumais of the U.S. earned the bronze at 446.70.
