At the 1998 World Championships the medals had gone to China, Germany, and Russia, in that order, but none of those precise duos competed in Sydney. The competition was between Russia and China with the lead going back and forth over the course of the event. The Russians Dmitry Sautin and Igor Lukashin pulled ahead after four dives and held on to defeat China’s Tian Liang and Hu Jia.
