July 31, 1988 |
Zhou Lüxin (simplified Chinese: 周吕鑫; traditional Chinese: 周呂鑫; pinyin: Zhōu Lǚxīn; born July 31, 1988 in Wuhu, Anhui) is a Chinese diver. He competed for Team China at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
He claimed the gold medal at the 2006 World Cup - 10m platform event. He also won the silver medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics - 10m platform event. Zhou was greatly favored to win the 10m event; however, on his 6th and final dive, a reverse 3½ somersaults, he kicked early and arched in on his entry. He received poor scores while Matthew Mitcham hit his final dive for a record breaking score, overtaking Zhou for the gold medal, while Zhou received the silver medal.
