Guo Jingjing Wins in 3-meter Springboard

China 's Guo Jingjing has won her fifth straight world championship in 3-meter springboard.

Guo finished with 388.20 points, far ahead of anyone else in the 12-woman final. Canada's Emilie Heymans was second with 346.45 and Italy's Tania Cagnotto thrilled the home crowd by taking the bronze with 341.25, The Associated Press reports.

The victor was never in doubt as Guo had already dominated both the preliminary round and the semi-finals.

Even so, she thought she could have done better.

"I performed well, I'm quite satisfied but there are still many things I could improve on. You should get better in every training session," she said.

There were reports that this might be her last ever competition but she refused to be drawn on her future.

"It's still hard to say whether I will compete at the London Olympics. I will try. As for the 2011 World Championships in Shanghai, I don't know either.

"Don't put too much pressure on me, I just want to rest now," AFP reports.

The 27-year-old Guo has also won gold in the 3m synchronised event in the last four world championships.

The synchronised final takes place on Friday at the Foro Italico, Reuters reports.
