David Boudia is Team USA's best hope of winning a medal (or two) in the 2012 London Olympics. He will compete in both the 10-meter platform and the synchronized 10-meter platform along with partner Nick McCrory.
Boudia surprised the diving world by winning a silver medal on the individual 10-meter platform at the 2011 FINA World Championships, the first American male to medal in the event in more than two decades. He has also won multiple medals in the event at the past few years' FINA World Series.
Boudia has also been successful in the synchronized 10-meter platform. He won silver at the 2009 FINA World Championships with partner Thomas Finchum, and with McCrory won silver at the 2012 FINA World Series and the 2010 AT&T USA Diving Grand Prix.
The 10-meter individual gold medal is expected to go to Qiu Bo, the best male diver in the world for the past year. Defending gold medalist Matt Mitcham of Australia will also compete, though he has battled injuries since coming out of retirement in 2011. Tom Daley of Great Britain is one of the stars of the home team, and he expects to medal.
Boudia finished fourth in the individual 10-meter at the FINA Diving World Cup. Though Qiu Bo walloped the competition, Boudia was in striking distance of finishing third. The gold medal is likely out of Boudia's reach, but he has a good chance of winning a silver or bronze.
Boudia and McCrory finished fourth in the synchronized event at the FINA Diving World Cup. Once again, the Chinese team is expected to win gold, but the American duo have been quite strong in this event lately, and they will likely battle with Mexico and Germany for silver or bronze.
