ROME, July 21 (Xinhua) -- China's diving legend Guo Jingjing said on Tuesday that she hopes to compete in her sixth Olympic Games in 2012 at London.

The 27-year-old, who has won four Olympic gold medalist and nine world titles, said, "I want to compete in London. I will continue to work hard and improve."

Guo was satisfied with her performance in winning her fifth consecutive springboard title at the world championships on Tuesday.

"I think I did better today than last year's Olympic Games," Guo said. "I feel I will be able to dive better. I still have the potential. My best days are still ahead of me," she said.

With nine world titles and four Olympic gold medals, Guo has set a world record and become an all-time great in diving history. But the "record" is not the drive force.

"I have never thought of setting a world record. I still enjoy diving. I enjoy the moment when I stand on the springboard and dive."
