The American 10 meter synchronized Olympic pair of Thomas Finchum and David Boudia finished in 5th place in the final at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It looks like the medal drought in diving is going to continue a little longer. They were less than five points away from the bronze medal score, which was earned by the Russians. The Chinese and Germans came in first and second.
Boudia and Finchum are residents of Indiana, where the U.S. national diving training center is located as is the USA Diving headquarters.
Both Boudia and Finchum have another opportunity to bring a medal back to the Hoosier state when they compete individually in the 10 meter platform event on 8/23.
