USA Diving had a fantastic Olympics! We ended up with 4 medals: 1 Gold, 1 Silver, and 2 Bronze.  Not bad after being skunked in the last 2 Olympics (2008, 2004) and only 1 medal in 2000.  Last gold in individual 10 meter tower was in 1988. - yikes!

Here is USA Diving's article about Boudia winning Gold:

He had a great final (prelims - not so much). Although I do admire the Chinese divers, it was good to see them lose.  They didn't respond to pressure well.  I wish that Tom Daley would have beaten them and taken silver.  He deserved it.

My son is a diver.  We are looking forward to his senior year.  Unsurprisingly, Boudia's Gold Medal is inspiration for American divers everywhere.
