He competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the Men's synchronized 10 metre platform, winning the gold medal. He won the gold medal at 2010 Asian Games in Men's 10 meter platform at the age of 15.

Cao Yuan is the only diver in history to win 3 gold medals in a single World Diving Series event by winning gold medals in 3m synchro, 10m synchro, and 10m individual events of the 2014 World Diving Series in Canada.

Cao Yuan together with Yue Lin are the only divers to ever win two World Series gold medals on the same day of the competition by winning the 3m synchro and 10m synchro events on May 30, 2014.

Cao Yuan started diving at age 5. His mother wanted him to learn discipline so enrolled him in diving classes. His life motto is "Go your own way and see your own scenery. Be calm for life's ups and downs." [2]
