Lucas and the rest of Team USA are accumulating as many points as possible in order to secure an Olympic berth. 

In the team action, the men's team won the third gold medal at the Championships as Nathan, Lucas and 2012 Olympian Dennis Bowsher won the team event for the United States. Team USA will be returning home before traveling next week to Rome, Italy for World Cup 3.
