David's story

David Boudia decided he was going to be an Olympian at 7 years old while watching the opening ceremonies of the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. After years of training, his dream came true in 2008 when he competed at the Beijing Olympics.

Now, he is the top 10-meter platform diver in the U.S. and one of the best in the world. He has more than 15 national titles and four Olympic medals--a Gold and Bronze from the 2012 London Olympics and a Silver and Bronze from the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Boudia began his diving career at age 11 in 2000. By 2005 he was a member of the U.S. National Diving Team and won the National Championships that year. From 2006-2008 David and his diving partner Thomas Finchum medaled in 14 major international competitions (10 consecutive). 

David competed at Purdue University where he broke several records and won a host of major competitions, finishing his college career with six NCAA national titles. 

Boudia made headlines at the 2012 Olympics in London. He and his synchronized 10m platform partner Nick McCrory became the first American duo to medal in the event. This was also the first Olympic medal for the U.S. in men’s diving since the 1996 games in Atlanta, the Olympic Games that first captured David’s eye. In his second event, the 10m platform, Boudia barely advanced from the prelims; he placed 18th in a field where only the top 18 advanced. In a thrilling final-round performance, David won the Gold. It was the first Olympic Gold medal for the U.S. in diving since the 2000 Olympics.
