36 Qualifed for Olympic Team Selection Camp: July 2-6

June 27, 2008, 11:37 a.m. (ET)

INDIANAPOLIS - Thirty-six divers have qualified to participate in USA Diving's Olympic team selection camp, set for July 2-6 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The first four divers nominated to the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team were determined at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Indianapolis last week, where Troy Dumais (Ventura, Calif.) and Christina Loukas (Riverwoods, Ill.) won the 3-meter springboard contests and David Boudia (Noblesville, Ind.) and Laura Wilkinson (Spring, Texas) placed first on platform to secure their nominations to the team. All four will participate in the camp, with three of them in the hunt for spots on additional events.

The second individual spot on each event as well as all four synchronized teams will be determined at the selection camp in Knoxville. Divers and synchro teams will perform four lists of dives throughout the camp and will be evaluated on a number of factors, not simply a final score.

Divers qualified for the camp based on performances at the Trials (individual events) or at past national championships (synchro events).

USA Diving will announce the final roster at noon on July 7.

The 2008 Olympic Games will be held in Beijing from August 8-24. Competition will be conducted in four events for both men and women: 3-meter, 10-meter, synchronized 3-meter, and synchronized 10-meter. The U.S. may enter two divers on each individual event and one team per synchronized event.
