Greg Louganis is widely respected as the greatest male diver ever.

There are few things in sports more astounding to witness than an Olympic diver in mid-leap. The sheer athleticism and speed with which they travel and maneuver is amazing.

For the male U.S. Olympic diving team, there has not been much to celebrate of late. Gone are the glory days of Greg Louganis and Sammy Lee. The U.S. team has not reached the podium since Mark Lenzi's bronze medal in 1996.

However, the team has a bunch of fresh-faced youngsters who are eager to return the respect to American diving. Though they may not like their standing on this list now, they have a chance to win some medals this summer and improve their place in the history books. Where they are come September, we can't know. So for now, find out where the young guns rank among the top 10 male divers in U.S. Olympic history.
