    Background: The People's Republic of China -- which is seeking entry into the swimming events of the 1976 Olympics -- has already claimed successes the Seventh Asian Games at Tehran, the Iranian capital.

    The Chinese case was strengthened by the performance of a 15-year-old high-diving champion, Li Kung-cheng, making his international debut on Saturday (7 September).

    Li executed a near-perfect series of dives to take the highboard diving gold medal, with his fellow countryman Tu Tu taking the silver medal. Japan's Tsutomu Kimura finished in third place.

    The Chinese application to enter the 1976 Olympics is to be considered by the International Swimming Federation Committee in Cairo on Saturday (14 September).

    By Saturday evening -- the end of the seventh day of the Asian Games -- Japan was the overall leader with 48 gold medals and 24 silvers. The people's Republic of China followed in second place with 16 gold medals and 27 silvers, ahead of North Korea who took 16 golds and 12 silvers.
