Summary

The Chinese pair of Guo Jingjing and Fu Mingxia seemed unbeatable, consisting of two of the greatest female divers ever. But Irina Lashko and Yuliya Pakhalina had won the 1998 World Championships and they defeated the Chinese duo, leading from start-to-finish, and posting the highest score on four of the five dives.
