China made a clean sweep of all the gold medals on offer at the 2006 FINA diving World Cup which concluded on Sunday. 

Lin Yue/Huo Liang grabbed the gold of men's 10m synchronized platform to complete China's gold-winning spree at the World Cup.

The teenager pair from the diving powerhouse held their top position since the first dive and concluded their performance with a backward two-and-a-half somersault two-and-a-half twist, collecting 104.88 points.

Earlier, world champion duo Guo Jingjing/Li Ting breezed to the gold of the women's 3m synchronized springboard with a total score of 343.80 points.

"I'm glad to conclude my World Cup journey with this gold, and I 'm satisfied with our performance," said Guo.

Ariel Rittenhouse/Kelci Bryant grabbed the second silver medal of the U.S. team by amassing 306.30 points. German Heike Fischer/ Ditte Kotzian placed third at 298.68 points.

Li grabbed a gold in the 10-metre synchronized platform with Lao Lishi at 2004 Athens Olympics but changed to the springboard afterwards.

Guo/Li has taken part in the event at five legs of the Grand Prix this year and never lost the top position.

Guo notched up the women's 1m springboard gold in the opening day on Wednesday but failed to grab China's 100th World Cup gold as she placed third in the 3m springboard final. Her teammate Wu Minxia topped the podium.

As the host of the five-day competition, China swept away all of the 10 golds plus four silvers and one bronze. Another traditional powerhouse Russia took home two silvers and one bronze.

The U.S. team grabbed three silvers and two bronzes. In the absence of Alexandre Despatie, Canada only ended up with three bronzes.
