China's teenage sensation Ren Qian, has triumphed in the 10m platform diving. At only 15 years old, she's the youngest gold medallist so far at this year's Olympics. Her remarkable performance has also made her the only diver to earn over 90 points on a single dive in the history of the women's 10m platform dive. Si Yajie, Ren's 17-year-old teammate, won silver. CCTV recently caught up with the girls behind China's teenage invasion of Rio.

"I felt a bit nervous. It was like a dream,"

"I felt very nervous in the beginning, but as the competition went on, I just felt better. I just thought of my own moves,"

"It's happened before, so in the future it could happen again,"

"I don't know where my future lies just now, but I will continue training hard,"

"We haven't thought much about how to celebrate," said Women's 10m Platform gold medalist Ren Qian.

"It's good to finish with a medal,"

"We just train and compete together like normal teammates. We've exchanged the lead in some tournaments before,"

"Tomorrow there will be the men's platform competition. We'll be cheering for our teammates," said Si Yajie.
