BEIJING, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- Triple Olympic champion Guo Jingjing bagged women's 3m springboard gold at Beijing Olympics on Sunday, becoming the first-ever diver to win back-to-back Olympic individual and synchro titles.

The overwhelming favorite, oldest in the Chinese squad at 26, seized the lead with her first dive for which she achieved 81 points.

The glamour girl compiled a total of 415.35 points to grab her second Olympic gold on home soil.

Russian veteran Julia Pakhalina took the silver at 398.60, beating Chinese No. 2 Wu Minxia who settled for bronze at 389.85.

With the victory, Guo has so far collected up to six Olympic medals to break the record holding by Fu Mingxia, who grabbed five.

It is the fifth gold the Chinese "dream team" snatched at the Beijing Olympics. The diving powerhouse eyes a clean sweep of eight diving titles in front of home fans.
