Join us for “‘Dive In’ to your dreams,” presented by the U.S. Diving Foundation and Duraflex International

USA Diving will host “’Dive In’ to your dreams,” presented by the U.S. Diving Foundation and Duraflex International on Sunday, August 3, at the Allan Jones Aquatic Center in Knoxville, Tenn. The event will feature a panel discussion highlighted by four Olympic divers sharing their stories of how diving helped them achieve their dreams.

The panel will consist of Micki King, Cynthia Potter, Laura Wilkinson and Cassidy Krug. Combined, they qualified for 10 U.S. Olympic Diving Teams, but their stories go much deeper. Diving helped these athletes propel themselves into careers such as an Air Force Colonel, a television analyst, a public speaker and an advertising executive. Come learn how USA Diving helped these athletes shape their future.

The discussion will take place at 6:30 p.m. following the athlete dinner. All divers and their families as well as the community of Knoxville are invited. Please join us for dessert, coffee and a discussion you won’t want to miss! The panel will be moderated by Dr. Lori Mosca, a Hawaii Ironman triathlete, diving parent, and frequent medical commentator on the world evening news and the Today Show.

The event will also promote awareness of the “Dive In” fundraising campaign. Funds donated to the campaign benefit athlete development, training opportunities/facilities and education and innovation to support all levels from grassroots and novice and beyond!

Laura Ryan finishes 11th in women’s 3-meter World Cup final

SHANGHAI – Laura Ryan (Elk River, Minn./Athens, Ga.) finished 11th in the women’s 3-meter final Sunday at the FINA Diving World Cup, the top international meet of the 2014 season and the last major world meet before Olympic qualifying begins next year.

Ryan finished with 282.85 points in her first individual world final. She opened the afternoon with 64.50 points on an inward 2 ½ pike, followed with 57 points on a back 2 ½ pike in the second round and then came up with 72 points on her reverse 2 ½ pike in round three. Her only miss of the day came in round four, when she scored just 26.35 points on her front 3 ½ pike, but she rebounded to close out her list with 63 points on her front 2 ½ with a twist to finish in 11th place.

“I was excited to be competing in my first individual final at a world meet. I wish I would have hit my front, but I got everything moving the way I wanted to and that gives me a lot of confidence going into next year,” said Ryan, who was 10th in Saturday’s semifinals to earn one of 12 spots into the finals.

China claimed the top two spots, with Shi Tingmao scoring 383.40 points for gold and He Zi finishing with 369.65 points for silver. Canada’s Jennifer Abel was third with 364.05 points.

Also on Sunday, Steele Johnson (Carmel, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) and David Dinsmore (New Albany, Ohio) advanced to the men’s 10-meter semifinals. Johnson, who earlier in the week won a bronze medal in synchronized 10-meter, closed out his first World Cup with 406.60 points for 14th place in the semifinals. Dinsmore scored 381.20 points for 17th place in his World Cup debut.

Boudia 8th, McCrory 12th in men’s 3-meter finals at World Cup

SHANGHAI – David Boudia (Noblesville, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) and Nick McCrory (Chapel Hill, N.C./Bloomington, Ind.) finished eighth and 12th, respectively, in the men’s 3-meter final Saturday at the FINA Diving World Cup. Additionally, Laura Ryan (Elk River, Minn./Athens, Ga.) placed 10th in the women’s 3-meter semifinals to qualify for Sunday’s finals.

Boudia scored 471.20 points in the finals, while McCrory finished with 407.55 points. China’s He Chong claimed gold with 540.35 points, while his teammate Cao Yuan took silver at 526.70. Jack Laugher of Great Britain was third with 488.20 points.

Boudia, who was competing individual 3-meter for the first time at a world meet, scored no lower than 72 points on any dive. He opened with 81.60 points on each of his first two dives, an inward 3 ½ tuck and a front 2 ½ with 2 twists, and added 85.50 on his front 4 ½ tuck in round five.

The 2012 Olympic 10-meter champion was pleased with how his first 3-meter contest at a world-level meet went.

“Springboard is a totally new event for me. I hate competing it, yet I love competing it at the same time. It’s just a constant battle with my mind. Going into the last round, I had no idea where I was in the standings, but I was consistent and that’s encouraging for me,” Boudia said.

Earlier in the World Cup, Boudia won a bronze medal in synchronized 10-meter with Steele Johnson (Carmel, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) and finished fourth in synchronized 3-meter with Sam Dorman (Tempe, Ariz./Coral Gables, Fla.). Boudia is not diving in the individual 10-meter at the World Cup although he is aiming to compete the event at the 2016 Olympic Games.

“I don’t know what the next two years will look like in terms of springboard for me. We’ll take a look and see what’s wise and best for the team,” he said.

McCrory started off his night with 79.50 points on his back 2 ½ pike, but dropped out of contention with a 42.50-point inward 3 ½ tuck in the next round. His best dive came in the final round, when he picked up 84 points on a reverse 1 ½ with 3 ½ twists. The 2012 Olympic 10-meter diver was fifth in Friday’s semifinals.

“This was my first meet back since the London Games. I’m disappointed with how I did in the finals, but I’m excited to be back and looking forward to seeing what the future holds for me,” McCrory said.

Ryan finished the women’s 3-meter semifinals with 303.55 points, good for 10th place and one of 12 spots into the finals. In 14th place after two rounds, she moved into the top 10 with 61.50 points on a reverse 2 ½ pike in round three and followed with a front 3 ½ pike that went for 63.55 points. She closed out her semifinal list with a 60-point front 2 ½ with a twist to qualify for the finals. Earlier in the day, she finished with 291.20 points to finish 17th in the preliminaries, enough to earn one of 18 spots into the semifinals.

Maren Taylor (Arlington, Va./Austin, Texas) also competed in the women’s 3-meter preliminaries, finishing 20th with 284.30 points. China’s He Zi was the top qualifier out the semifinals, finishing with 375.90 points.

The World Cup comes to a close Sunday. In addition to Ryan in the women’s 3-meter final, Team USA will have Johnsonand David Dinsmore (New Albany, Ohio) in action in the men’s 10-meter contest.

McCrory, Boudia advance to men’s 3-meter finals at World Cup

SHANGHAI – Team USA qualified two divers into Saturday’s men’s 3-meter finals at the FINA Diving World Cup as Nick McCrory (Chapel Hill, N.C./Bloomington, Ind.) finished fifth and David Boudia (Noblesville, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) was ninth in Friday’s semifinals.

McCrory, competing internationally for the first time since the London Olympic Games, scored 478.25 points in his first 3-meter international competition since he won silver at the 2006 Junior World Championships. McCrory previously was a 10-meter specialist and won Olympic bronze in synchronized 10-meter with Boudia in London.

In the 3-meter semifinals Friday, McCrory put together a solid list, scoring no lower than 75 points on any of his dives. He earned more than 80 points on two of them, scoring 84 points on his reverse 1 ½ with 3 ½ twists and 83.30 points on his inward 3 ½ tuck, to solidify a place in the finals.

Boudia finished ninth with 462.50 points, including 86.70 points on his front 2 ½ with 2 twists. He scored 80.50 points on two other dives to join McCrory in the finals. Earlier in the week, Boudia won a bronze medal in synchronized 10-meter with Steele Johnson and finished fourth in synchronized 3-meter with Sam Dorman.

In other action Friday, the U.S. had two divers advance to the women’s 10-meter semifinals, but neither made it into the finals. Jessica Parratto (Dover, N.H./Bloomington, Ind.) scored 312.05 points to finish 14th, while Samantha “Murphy” Bromberg (Bexley, Ohio/Austin, Texas) finished 15th with 311.85 points. Bromberg was fourth in the morning preliminaries after scoring 342.45 points, including 84.15 on her back 3 ½ tuck. Parratto was 15th with 310.10 points in the prelims.

The FINA World Cup continues through Sunday, July 20. Saturday’s competition features Laura Ryan (Elk River, Minn./Athens, Ga.) and Maren Taylor (Arlington, Va./Austin, Texas) in women’s 3-meter as well as McCrory and Boudia in the men’s 3-meter finals.

Team USA scores two top-eight finishes in synchro events at World Cup

SHANGHAI – A day after winning bronze in men’s synchronized 10-meter, David Boudia (Noblesville, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) paired with Sam Dorman (Tempe, Ariz./Coral Gables, Fla.) to finish fourth in men’s synchronized 3-meter Thursday at the FINA Diving World Cup, the top international competition of the year. Amy Cozad (Indianapolis, Ind./Tallahassee, Fla.) and Katrina Young (Shoreline, Wash./Tallahassee, Fla.) finished eighth in women’s synchronized 10-meter.

Boudia and Dorman finished with 417.54 points in the 3-meter synchro final, which was won by China’s Lin Yue and Cao Yuan at 461.31. The same pair also took gold in men’s 10-meter synchro on Wednesday. Germany’s Patrick Hausding and Stefan Feck scored 431.40 points for silver, finishing six-hundredths of a point ahead of 2012 Olympic silver medalists Evgenii Kuznetsov and Ilia Zakharov of Russia.

The Americans scored more than 80 points on two of their optional dives, highlighted by 86.10 points on their reverse 1 ½ with 3 ½ twists in the last round, but Boudia knows there is room for improvement.

“I’m extremely pleased with how we did, especially considering where we were in April. We had two misses and were still fourth place, 15 points out of third. Those are easy points to pick up. Sam and I will continue to train hard and we’ll see how we progress with our consistency,” Boudia said.

Boudia has been on the U.S. roster for every World Cup and World Championships since 2005, but prior to Thursday, the Olympic 10-meter champion had never competed on a springboard event at a world meet. Dorman was competing in his first World Cup meet, and Boudia was impressed with how the rookie handled the meet.

“It’s not easy to go into a world-level competition and handle the pressure. The Chinese dove right before us, and the crowd was going wild. This is what he’s trained for his entire life, and he handled it like a pro, like he’s been doing it for years. I’m just happy I could be right beside him. I continue to learn from him,” Boudia said.

The Americans also finished fourth in the preliminaries, although they scored 8.73 points higher in the finals.

“In the prelims, I had a lot of nerves. Coming into finals, after we walked out, we were laughing and just really casual, in good spirits all around. David really kept me at ease. I was really happy to see us do as well as we did,” Dorman said.

In women’s 10-meter synchro, Cozad and Young scored 281.82 points, while China’s Chen Ruolin and Liu Huixia finished with 357.66 points for gold. Malaysia’s Mun Yee Leong and Jun Hoong Cheong scored 336.66 points to edge Canadians Meaghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion by 1.41 points for silver. Chen won Olympic gold on this event in 2008 and 2012, while the Canadian pair won bronze two years ago in London. The field also included 2012 Olympic silver medalists Paola Espinosa and Alejandra Orozco on Mexico and several other Olympians.

“A lot of these girls have been diving together for years. We’ve only been diving together since January and we finished eighth in the world. That says a lot about us and what we’ve been able to accomplish together in such a short time. I’m excited to see what the future holds for us. I love diving with Katrina,” Cozad said.

While Cozad is a veteran national team member, having competed at the 2012 World Cup and 2013 World Championships, Young had never been to a World Cup. In fact, she’d never even competed in synchronized diving until she and Cozad won the World Cup trials in April. Like Dorman, the jitters were there for Young as well.

On their opening dive in the preliminaries, Cozad and Young scored just 27.60 points. They rebounded to score more than 70 points on two of their final three dives to finish ninth in the prelims. In the finals, they improved and opened with 43.80 points on their first dive and closed out their list with 69.12 points on their back 2 ½ with 1 ½ twists to finish eighth.

“This was my first World Cup meet, and I was really, really nervous in the preliminaries. I just wanted to get through them. After prelims were over, I talked to Amy and (coach) Pat (Jeffrey) and we came up with a game plan for the finals. Amy told me to just stay in the moment. I was a lot more relaxed and had a lot of fun diving in the finals,” Young said.

The FINA World Cup continues through Sunday, July 20. Boudia will compete Friday in the individual men’s 3-meter event, with Nick McCrory (Chapel Hill, N.C./Bloomington, Ind.) also diving in the event. Friday’s events also will include Samantha “Murphy” Bromberg (Bexley, Ohio/Austin, Texas) and Jessica Parratto (Dover, N.H./Bloomington, Ind.) in the individual women’s 10-meter contest.

 

 

Boudia and Johnson win World Cup bronze in 10-meter synchro

SHANGHAIDavid Boudia (Noblesville, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) and Steele Johnson (Carmel, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) won the bronze medal in men’s synchronized 10-meter Wednesday at the FINA Diving World Cup, the top international meet of the 2014 season.

Boudia and Johnson scored 414.12 points to finish third behind China’s Lin Yue and Cao Yuan (494.46) and Germany’s Patrick Hausding and Sascha Klein (444.78).

It was the first international competition together for Boudia and Johnson.

“We’re a new synchro team. Steele and I have never done 10-meter synchro together at a major competition before. I thought we dove solid, and this is a good stepping stone for the next two years,” said Boudia, who won Olympic bronze in 10-meter synchro with Nick McCrory two years ago in London.

The Americans were in a close contest for the bronze medal, sitting in fourth place behind China, Germany and Mexico through four rounds, but just 2.31 points separated third from fifth with two rounds to go.

Boudia and Johnson scored 79.92 points on their front 4 ½ tuck in round five, while Mexico’s German Sanchez and Ivan Garcia went for the difficult inward 4 ½ tuck but came up with just 63.96 points to allow the U.S. pair to move into the bronze medal position. The Americans closed out their list with 77.76 points on a back 2 ½ with 2 ½ twists to finish with 414.12 points, edging Cubans Jose Guerra and Jeinkler Aguirre by 3.36 points for the spot on the podium.

“This was a good milestone for us. I’m super excited to be partnered with David. I just want to do the best I can every time I dive with him,” said the 18-year-old Johnson, who is competing in his first World Cup.

Also on Wednesday, Abby Johnston (Upper Arlington, Ohio) and Laura Ryan (Elk River, Minn./Athens, Ga.) finished 14th with 262.50 points in the women’s synchronized 3-meter preliminaries and did not advance to the finals. They scored just 27.60 points on their first-round front dive pike to sit in 17th place after round one and had to climb their way back up the standings. After scoring more than 60 points on all three optional dives, including 66.60 points on a back 2 ½ pike in the last round, they moved up to 14th place and 8.7 points shy of making the finals. China’s Wu Minxia and Shi Tingmao won the gold with 340.50 points.

The FINA World Cup continues through Sunday, July 20. Thursday’s competition features Boudia and Sam Dorman (Tempe, Ariz./Coral Gables, Fla.) in men’s synchronized 3-meter and Amy Cozad (Indianapolis, Ind./Tallahassee, Fla.) and Katrina Young (Shoreline, Wash./Tallahassee, Fla.) in women’s synchronized 10-meter.

 

 

 

Bromberg and Johnson open World Cup with fourth place in team event

SHANGHAI – Murphy Bromberg (Bexley, Ohio/Austin, Texas) and Steele Johnson (Carmel, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) opened up the 2014 FINA Diving World Cup with a fourth-place finish for Team USA in Tuesday’s team event.

Johnson and Bromberg combined for 367.90 points in the team event, which features one male and one female diver from each country. Each diver must do three dives, with at least one apiece on 3-meter and 10-meter. All six groups must be performed, and each diver must do one voluntary dive.

Eleven countries participated in the team event, with China’s Huang Xiahui and Chen Aisen scoring 408.60 points for the gold. Ukraine’s Oleksandr Bondar and Yulia Prokopchuk were second with 390.55 points, and Russia’s Victor Minibaev and Nadezdha Bazhina scored 381.30 points for bronze.

“It was definitely a new experience, and we came so close. It’s always tough getting fourth place, but for the first event of the competition, it was a good way to start out,” Johnson said.

Bromberg and Johnson scored 85 points on their two voluntary dives on 3-meter in the first round. Johnson then performed his armstand double back with 2 ½ twists on 10-meter for 84.60 points and added 68 points on his reverse 3 ½ tuck, also on 10-meter. Bromberg also did her two optional dives on 10-meter, scoring 68.80 points on her inward 3 ½ tuck and 61.50 points on her front 3 ½ pike.

Johnson next competes Wednesday in the men’s synchronized 10-meter competition and will also dive in Sunday’s individual 10-meter event, while Bromberg will compete in Friday’s women’s 10-meter individual contest.

“The pressure is definitely off for every other event. The first dive of a meet is always heart-pounding and you’re nervous. Now, we’ve gotten a few dives off in front of the judges and we’ve been in a tight competition. We know what we can do, individually and in synchro, and we’re hopefully going to be a little less nervous for those other events,” Johnson said.

Bromberg echoed those thoughts.

“I think I feel a lot better now going into my individual event. Doing the team event was different. It was a fun event,” she said.

The World Cup runs through Sunday, July 20. Wednesday’s competition features Abby Johnston (Upper Arlington, Ohio) and Laura Ryan (Elk River, Minn./Athens, Ga.) in women’s 3-meter synchro and Johnson and David Boudia (Noblesville, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) in men’s 10-meter synchro.

Team USA set for FINA World Cup in Shanghai

Olympic medalists David Boudia, Abby Johnston and Nick McCrory are among the 12 divers set to compete for Team USA at the FINA Diving World Cup, set for July 15-20 in Shanghai. The World Cup is the top international meet of the 2014 season and is the last major world competition before Olympic qualifying begins next summer.

Boudia will have a busy schedule as he’s slated to compete in three events. He’ll dive synchronized 10-meter with 18-year-old World Cup rookie Steele Johnson, and for the first time at a World Cup or World Championships, he’ll add individual 3-meter and synchronized 3-meter (with first-time World Cup team member Sam Dorman, who paired with Boudia for synchro wins at the 2013 USA Diving Winter Nationals and 2014 World Cup Synchro Trials) to his schedule. The only event Boudia won’t dive is his specialty, the individual 10-meter. He didn’t compete that event at winter nationals, where the individual World Cup spots were determined.

Returning for his first international competition since the London Olympic Games is McCrory, who won Olympic bronze in synchronized 10-meter with Boudia in 2012. He won’t be on the platforms in Shanghai though, as he’s shifted his focus to the springboard. He’ll compete on individual 3-meter for the first time in his senior international career; the last time he dove this event in an international meet was back in 2006, when he won silver at the Junior World Championships.

Johnston won the silver medal in synchronized 3-meter at the London 2012 Olympics, and that’s the event she’ll compete in Shanghai, albeit with a new partner. After missing the 2013 season due to shoulder surgery, Johnston returned to competition in April and won the World Cup synchro trials with Laura Ryan. The pair went on to win bronze together at a FINA Grand Prix meet in Mexico in May.

Ryan, the 2014 NCAA diver of the year after winning NCAA titles on 1-meter and 3-meter and finishing third at NCAAs on platform for the University of Georgia, will also compete individually on 3-meter at the World Cup. Joining her on that event will be Maren Taylor, who finished 11th on 3-meter at the 2013 FINA World Championships in her first international competition. She won the event at the 2013 USA Diving Winter National Championships and claimed 3-meter bronze at a FINA Grand Prix meet in Puerto Rico in May.

Two-time 10-meter national champion Samantha “Murphy” Bromberg will compete individually for the first time at a major senior-level world meet after competing in synchronized 10-meter at last year’s World Championships. Jessica Parratto will also dive 10-meter in her return to Shanghai, where she was 15th on 10-meter at the 2011 World Championships.

National team veteran Amy Cozad will pair with Katrina Young in synchronized 10-meter. Cozad has competed for Team USA at the 2013 World Championships, the 2012 World Cup and the 2011 Pan American Games and had previously won four national titles in synchronized events, but Young had never competed in a synchro event until the World Cup trials in April when she and Cozad paired together for the victory. The two went on to win silver at a FINA Grand Prix meet in Puerto Rico in May.

In addition to diving synchronized 10-meter with Boudia, Johnson will compete individually on 10-meter. He’s won the national title on the event at the last three national championships and won his first senior international medal after taking bronze on 10-meter at the FINA Grand Prix Canada Cup competition in May. Also diving 10-meter is 17-year-old David Dinsmore, who won bronze on platform at the 2012 Junior World Championships and made his senior national debut in 2013 by finishing second at the AT&T National Diving Championships.

Johnson and Bromberg will also take part in the “team” event, which features one male and one female diver from each country. Each diver must do three dives, with at least one apiece on 3-meter and 10-meter.
