China won its second and historic gold medal in artistic swimming at the 19th FINA World Championships on Tuesday, scoring 94.7202 points in total in the women's team technical.

"This is a historic moment. We've never won the team technical gold in a FINA World Championship before. This is definitely a big breakthrough since China's artistic swimming team was founded in 1983," head coach Zhang Xiaohuan told Xinhua following the victory.

"The enemy is ourselves. I asked them to deliver their best. We had really hard training in the past seven months and it's all deserved," Zhang added.

The Japan team got the silver, with a score of 92.2261 points, while Italy came third with a slightly lesser score of 91.0191 points.
