RIO DE JANEIRO — China is 2-for-2 in Olympic diving, winning the men’s 10-meter synchronized platform title.

Chen Aisen and Lin Yue dominated the event Monday, totaling 496.98 points. Americans David Boudia and Steele Johnson earned silver with 457.11. Tom Daley and Daniel Goodfellow of Britain took bronze with 445.45, rallying from fifth place after the fourth of six rounds.

The Chinese have won 10-meter synchro in every Olympics since 2004 in Athens. Chen won gold in Beijing at age 17, but wasn’t selected for the event four years ago in London.

China won its first diving gold of these games a day earlier in women’s 3-meter synchro.
