Diver Sam Dorman Opens Up About The Olympic Rings Tattoo He Got With Rickie Fowler

This summer's U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Diving marked only the first time Sam Dorman and Michael Hixon competed together as a 3-meter synchronized diving team. The Rio 2016 Olympic Games marked only the second. So it was a surprise, to say the least, when Dorman and Hixon left Rio with a shiny silver medal at their Olympic debut.

When Dorman returned to his hometown of Tempe, Arizona, he received a hero's welcome at his high school and heard the entire student body chanting his name. As if his return home could not get more exciting, Dorman and golfer Rickie Fowler followed through with a discussion they had over dinner one day in Rio and went to Miami to get their Olympic rings tattoos.
