LONDON -- Former Purdue diver David Boudia competes in the first of his two events at the Olympic Games Monday at 10 a.m. ET, taking to the boards with Nick McCrory in the synchronized 10-meter platform.
The synchronized 10-meter platform competition features only eight diving duos. The 2 p.m. start time in London makes for a 10 a.m. competition time in the Eastern Time Zone. A live video webcast of the competition will be available via NBCOlympics.com. NBC will televise portions of the competition via tape delay Monday during its 8 p.m. to midnight coverage.
Boudia and McCrory will also compete individually from the 10-meter platform later in the Olympic Games. That competition is set for Aug. 10-11. Purdue diving coach Adam Soldati is also currently in London serving as a staff assistant for USA Diving as well as the personal coach for Boudia.
USA Diving has already claimed a medal in a synchronized event. Kelci Bryant and Abby Johnston won silver in the synchronized 3-meter springboard Sunday. It was USA Diving's first Olympic medal since 2000.
