KAZAN-- When Wu Minxia renewed her own record as she claimed her eighth world title in her eighth FINA World Swimming Championships, she just made up her mind to continue her struggle with injury and age until her dream comes true.

"I have a dream that I can hold on and dive in Rio Olympic Games. The world champion today helps me one step closer to fulfill my Olympic dream, " Wu said.

It was Wu's 13th medal at the world championships, extending her own female record and all in diving when she won the women's 3m springboard synchro together with Shi Tingmao. She is the first diver to win a medal in each of eight editions of the world championships.
