Australian diver Maddison Keeney won her first ever world title in Budapest on Saturday, taking women's 1-metre springboard gold as China suffered a rare podium shutout.
The win was a stunning comeback for Keeney, who failed to perform her last dive at the 2015 world championships in Kazan, Russia, jumping into the water instead.
"I needed to rebuild myself and come back from that, not to bury myself or think about the past," said Keeney.
"I trained so hard all my life and I knew it would eventually pay off."
Keeney won gold with 314.95 points ahead of Russian Nadezhda Bazhina (304.70), and Italy's Elena Bertocchi in third place (296.40).
Chinese divers had dominated the medal count in this discipline at the last four world meets but narrowly missed out on the podium in Budapest.
Pre-meet favourite, China's Yiwen Chen, came fourth on 294.70 points.
