Monday Morning Man: David Boudia!
David Boudia is widely seen as one of the best chances the U.S. Olympic diving team has of winning a medal during the 2012 Olympic games in London.
He will compete in both the 10-meter platform and the synchronized 10-meter platform events.
Here’s why the 23-year-old Texan is expected on the medal stand: David was the first American male diver to medal at the 2011 FINA World Championships in 20 years after winning silver on the 10-meter platform. He also won a silver medal in the synchronized 10-meter platform in 2009 at the FINA World CHampionships, in 2010 at the AT&T USA Diving Grand Prix and earlier this year at the 2012 FINA World series.
In the synchronized 10-meter platform event in London, Boudia will team up with Nick McRory.
