Chen Ruolin (simplified Chinese: 陈若琳; traditional Chinese: 陳若琳; pinyin: Chén Ruòlín; born 12 December 1992) is a Chinese diver. Her most recent competition saw her win the synchronized 10 metre platform diving event with her partner Liu Huixia at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Career

Chen was born in Nantong, Jiangsu. She won the gold medals in the women's 10m platform and 10m synchronized platform at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing for Team China, then duplicated the double gold performance at the London 2012 Summer Olympics.[2]

In the 2011 World Aquatics Championships held in Shanghai, Chen won two gold medals for Women's 10 m platform and Women's 10 m synchro platform (partnering Wang Hao). She became the first Chinese female diver who claimed all the gold medals in women's platform events in Olympic Games, World Cup and World Championships.

In 2014, she lit the torch at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics in the Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre.

In the 2016 Summer Olympics she won her fifth Olympic gold medal at the 10m synchronised event and became only the third Chinese athlete to win 5 Olympic gold medals. In October 2016 Chen announced her retirement from diving due to a neck injury.
