The U.S. has a chance to take home some gold, silver or bronze across the pond, but all that rides on the backs of these three athletes:
Veteran Olympic-goer Dumais has represented his country in the last three summer games but has failed to take home any hardware yet on the world's grandest stage.
Just because the former Texas Longhorn hasn't shined on the Olympic stage doesn't mean he's to be taken lightly, though. He and his synchronized three-meter springboard partner Kristian Ipsen won their event at the 2011 National Championships and USA Diving's Athlete Award in 1997 and 2006.
The two found themselves competing against one another Sunday at the Olympic trials in the individual three-meter springboard event, however. Dumais held off his usual partner for the second-place spot with Ipsen finishing third. Dumais and Ipsen won the synchronized three-meter springboard event.
The team of Dumais and Ipsen have had success when the spotlight is on them, and they'll need to do so once again when they lights shine brightest in London.
Colwill certainly put together the most entertaining path to the summer games Sunday, when he rallied from third place in the men's three-meter springboard, all the way to first.
The 27-year-old is another member of the 2008 team who failed to medal, but he showed clutch-like ability when he closed the over 42-point gap between himself and Dumais to capture first place at the Olympic trials.
It's never great to hear that three of the divers being sent to the games for Team USA didn't take home any titles back in 2008, but these men look hungry to do so this time around.
Unlike her teammates, Viola is no Olympic veteran; in fact London will mark her first time competing on this stage.
Viola didn't just qualify, she didn't rally like Colwill, she just dominated. In nothing short of an epic performance, the Minnesota-born diver won the 10-meter platform event by almost 60 points Sunday, with Katie Bell trailing far behind in second.
The University of Miami graduate nearly qualified for the 2004 games in Athens, but was narrowly beaten out by Laura Wilkinson (who was the last U.S. diver to medal at the Olympics with her 10-meter platform gold in 2000). That being said, this is not 2004.
Viola has had plenty of time to progress her talent and if she can put together a similar performance when the actual games kick off, she'll easily medal in the 10-meter platform.
