Broben scored an 83.20 for both her second and third dives, her highest score in the competition, and a 81.60 for her last dive.
China continues to dominate the diving category at the Olympics. They hold the most Olympic medals received in London with a total of 9. Ruolin herself already has a total 15 gold medals, from the Olympics, World Championships, Asian Games and FINA World Cup.
Fans expected the 19-yer-old to deliver and she did, taking home her second gold medal from the London Games. She was also the champion in the women's synchronized 10-meter platform finals, scoring a 368.40 with her partner Wang Ho.
The 10-meter platform final marked the last women's diving event for the 2012 Olympic Games. The men still need to compete in the preliminary round, semifinals and finals for the 10-meter platform.
