TOKYO, July 25  -- China's Shi Tingmao and Wang Han won the women's synchronised 3-metre springboard gold with 326.40 points at Tokyo 2020 here on Sunday.

According to Xinhua, it was China's fifth consecutive gold in the event since Athens 2004 and Shi Tingmao's third Olympic gold medal in diving.

Jennifer Abel and Melissa Citrini Beaulieu claimed the silver for Canada with 300.78 points. Canada's last medal from the event was a bronze medal nine years ago at London 2012.

The silver also levelled the country's best result in a synchronised event at the Olympics, when Emilie Heymans and Anne Montminy finished second in the women's synchronised platform 10-metre in 2000.

Tina Punzel and Lena Hentschel of Germany took the bronze. It was Germany's second bronze medal after Beijing 2008, and the first medal in Tokyo.
