Olympic diving events begin on Sunday at the outdoor Maria Lenk Aquatic Center and veteran American diver David Boudia believes the 10 members of Team USA have a significant leg up on the competition.
“I think this team is so well prepared,” Boudia said. “We’ve been in these conditions before. We wen’t to Fort Lauderdale in January when it was 55 degrees and windy and rainy. So we’ve been in this type of setting and we have a huge advantage over the rest of the field.”
Olympic diving this year returns to an outdoor facility for the first time since the 1992 Barcelona Games 24 years ago.
