The Chinese diver 14-year-old Hongchan Quan gave us the first perfect double grade in this discipline of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games during the final on a 10-meter platform.
The young athlete, who is one of the favorites to win the gold medal, surprised everyone by scoring two tens by all the judges on his second and fourth dive.

But his great performance would not end there, since Hongchan Quan got a perfect grade again, two dives that gave him the gold medal by adding 466.20 points.
