Barcelona 1992 women's diving 10m platform final

Diving isn’t known for crowning young Olympic champions in the way that gymnastics is. But on an outdoor platform of Barcelona 1992, a young girl from the People’s Republic of China became the exception. FU Mingxia was 13-years-old when she arrived in the Spanish city, fresh off of winning the 1991 world title. She put in an exceptional performance, with a final score of 461.43 points, with Yelena Miroshina (Unified Team) finishing in a distant second with 411.63 points.

Fu went on to win Olympic titles in Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000.
