A severely underweight athlete won China's 11th gold medal today after going without eating evening meals for a year.
Wang Xin, who is 4ft 6in and weighs 4st 4lb, has long been billed as one of China's top hopefuls in diving.
Today the 16-year-old and partner Chen Ruolin, also 16, took victory in the synchronised 10m platform event at Beijing's Water Cube.
They scored the top ranking dive in every round, claiming a victory with 363.54 points, almost 30 more than Australia's silver medallists Briony Cole and Melissa Wu.
Wang has a body mass index of 14.5 - far below the healthy recommended level of between 18 and 25.
She was introduced to diving aged nine and has proved to be the most promising Chinese diver since Fu Mingxia, who has four Olympic golds under her belt.
But the world champion, who is known among her team-mates as the "stick insect", has previously admitted she had not eaten anything in the evenings for the past 12 months.
Wang, who celebrated her birthday yesterday and will next compete in the 10m individual diving event, said: "For the past year or so, I haven't eaten anything after dark, except for the occasional postcompetition snack."
She would not say whether she volunteered for the evening fast or if she was following coaches' orders.
