2012 London Olympics: Team USA Wins First Ever Medal In Men's Synchronized Diving

A pair of American divers earned the United States' first ever medal for men's synchronized diving on Monday. The team of David Boudia and Nicholas McCrory won the bronze medal in the men’s synchronized 10m platform event. The bronze medal moves Team USA's medal count to 13 total, tied with China for the most at the 2012 Summer Olympics so far.

The 10m platform event was dominated by the Chinese team, who earned the gold medal by scoring 20 more points than the silver medal winning team from Mexico. This was the third straight gold medal win for the Chinese team in this event. It was the second gold medal of the 2012 games in synchronized diving, an event that has been a part of the games since 2000.

Boudia and McCrory will compete again on Friday in the 10m platform event.

Italy trailed China and the U.S. in the medal count with eight. China leads the games so far in gold medals with seven. Team USA has the second most gold medals with three. A complete medal count is available here.
