Hu Jia upstaged his illustrious teammate Tian Liang to give China a record six of eight diving titles. The 2000 Sydney Games silver medallist said: 'There was a lot of pressure on me. Almost everyone in the Chinese diving team had won a gold medal. The last Games in Sydney I was still quite young. In the past four years I've always put the gold medal as my aim. There has been a lot of pain and setbacks, but I've never given up. I think the most important thing is that I'm more self-confident now.'
