I was excited to be named a member of the US National Team and to represent the United States at the FINA Grand Prix in Fort Lauderdale. I dove synchro 10 meter and had an amazing time! It was cool meeting and competing against other divers from all around the world. After the Grand Prix, I competed at the World Championship Team Trials.
I finished in 3rd in 10 meter synchro and 4th in the men’s 10 meter individual. I scored personal bests which was very cool. I got six 10′s on my back 3 1/2 tuck. That was so cool. I am working hard learning a couple more tough dives to add to my Senior List.
I am going to have fun competing this summer at the Junior National Championships and the Senior National Championships!
2013 has been a pretty cool year so far! Getting ready for Rio in 2016!
This weekend, I qualified for the men’s individual 10meter platform event for the U.S.A. Diving National Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina, in August. I will be competing in the Synchro event also! I didn’t have the best meet I could have because the pool was outside and I couldn’t get my spots…that’s how you know where you are when you areflipping really fast…but I know I am going to be ready for the Nationals! Good luck to all our Olympic Team Divers in London. It’s going to be a great Olympics!
I can’t wait to see the new documentary film about Greg Louganis. It is called Back on Board. I am so proud that I got to be in the movie with Greg. He is the best diver in the world and is my hero and friend!
Thanks Greg, for all your encouragement and for letting me be a part of your story.
