China's medal prospects at the London Olympics were highlighted when they won all four gold medals up for grabs on the first day of the FINA/Midea Diving World Series in Dubai.

There were individual titles for He Chong in the men's three-metre springboard and Chen Ruolin in the women's 10-metre platform while Cao Yuan and Zhang Yanquan won the men's 10-metre synchro platform event and Wu Minixa and He Zi captured the women's three-metre synchro springboard title.

The success follows a Chinese clean sweep of eight golds at last month's FINA World Cup at the London Aquatic Centre, venue for this year's Olympic diving competition, and the 10 golds on offer at the 2011 world championships in Shanghai.
