BUDAPEST - China's Chen Yuxi and Quan Hongchan finished one-two in the women's 10m platform final on the 10th competition day of the 19th FINA World Championships here on Monday.

The 16-year-old Chen, Olympic champion of the women's 10m platform sychonized pairing Zhang Jiaqi, defend her world title with 417.25 points, 0.3 ahead of her compatriot Quan, who is one year younger.

Malaysia's Pandelela Pamg bagged a bronze with 338.85 points.

"I did not notice the point gap between me and Hongchan. I don't focus on that but always on my moves and acts," Chen told Xinhua following her victory.

"It's not a perfect show for me, especially since I did not finish well in the last two dives. I could be better," she added.

Chen further explained: "It feels very different to defend the title. When I won the gold for the first time in 2019, I didn't have any special feeling. But following my experience at the Olympics, I started to know how much this means to me."
