Carson Tyler Wins Men's 10-Meter to Qualify for U.S. Olympic Team

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Carson Tyler (Moultrie, Ga./Bloomington, Ind.) has qualified for his first Olympic Games after winning the men’s 10-meter event on Saturday at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

Tyler finished with 965.45 points over two list of dives, including 488.25 points on his list in Saturday’s final.

“I can’t put it into words, it’s so amazing. All the hard years of training just paid off, and I’m so happy,” Tyler said. “I was trying just to take it step by step, one foot in front of the other and not get too outcome oriented. I was confident in myself and thought I could make it happen.”

The 20-year-old Tyler scored 81.60 points or higher on four of his six dives in the finals, including 86.40 points on his last dive – a back 2 ½ with 2 ½ twists, to secure his first Olympic berth. He added 90.75 points on a back 3 ½ tuck that received three 9.5s and three 9.0s from the judges.

Tyler is also in contention to make the Olympic team on 3-meter. He sits in second place heading into Sunday's final in that event.

USA Diving will await word on a potential second quota spot in men’s 10-meter.  

2020 Olympian Brandon Loschiavo (Huntington Beach, Calif./West Lafayette, Ind.) finished second with 892.30 points in the 10-meter final. Loschiavo saved his best for last, closing out his list with 86.70 points on a reverse 3 ½ tuck and 88.80 points on a front 4 ½ tuck in the last two rounds of the finals.

A maximum of 136 divers may compete in Paris. Additional quota places will be reallocated to the next highest placing federations from the 2024 World Aquatics Championships to the extent that the aggregate of all entries (synchronized diving and individual diving) does not exceed 136.

The U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Diving continue through Sunday, June 23. The women’s 3-meter final will take place Saturday evening, with men’s 3-meter and women’s 10-meter finals set for Sunday.
