Athletes to Watch: David Boudia

The four-time Olympic medalist has plans to compete in a fourth Games, but a concussion prevented him from competing in last spring’s World Cup (the biggest event of the 2018 season). He returned to competition in November 2018, finishing second at a FINA Grand Prix event.

The twist – he was competing on 3m springboard, not 10m platform (the discipline in which he won his four Olympic medals), in order to make things easier on his body.

Boudia credits his wife and two daughters with helping him find balance in his life, and says “[diving] is not what defines me.” He’s already shown plenty of promise on springboard, winning the 2019 U.S. national title and qualifying for his first World Championships in his new discipline.
