  Sautin had 665.49 points for the gold medal

UNIONDALE, New York (AP) - Dmitry Sautin, repeating his 3-meter and platform double from the 1998 World Championships, won the Goodwill Games platform diving Monday night.

The Russian easily defeated a pair of Chinese divers in the platform, where he also is the 1996 Olympic champion.

Sautin had 665.49 points for the gold medal, while Tian Liang had 623.01 and Sun Shuwei 598.80 for the silver and bronze.

Three Americans - Mark Ruiz of Orlando, Florida; Kevin McMahon of Fremont, Nebraska; and Kyle Prandi of Strongsville, Ohio - finished sixth, seventh and eighth. Ruiz won the bronze medal in the 1-meter event.

Sautin had at least one judge's award of 8.5 on all of his 21 dives except one in his two events - his next-to-last dive on Monday. His best mark on a reverse 3 1/2 was 7.5.

But he came back with all 8's, 8.5's and 9.0's on his last dive - an inward 3 1/2 with a high 3.4 degree of difficulty - to score 87.36 points, his highest in either the 3-meter or platform.
