FUKUOKA, Japan - China increased its lead on the medal table at the World Aquatics Championships by winning two more golds on Saturday when diving and artistic swimming wrapped up their final day's competition.

Cheng Wentao and Shi Haoyu claimed the mixed duet free title, their second gold and third medal at the Fukuoka worlds following their victory in the team acrobatic event and mixed duet technical bronze.

Zhu Zifeng and Lin Shan afterward claimed the mixed 3m synchronized springboard title for China, its 12th from diving and 15th overall.

But China, who swept all 13 diving gold medals in last year's Budapest worlds, saw its monopoly of world titles broken by Australia's Cassiel Rousseau, who secured the title of the men's 10m platform with a near-perfect last dive.

China leads the tally with 15 gold, five silver and four bronze medals. Japan is second on 4-1-3 and Germany third on 4-0-2.

The United States stays on 10th with two silver and four bronze medals but gold medals are expected to come soon for them when the swimming competition kicks off on Sunday.
