Rio De Janeiro - American diver David Boudia, who was the 2012 Olympic gold medalist in diving, won two medals at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
A 27-year-old diver, Boudia took home the bronze in the Men's 10 meter platform diving, in which he accumulated a total of 525.25 points. Mexican diver Germán Sánchez won the silver, while Chinese diver Chen Aisen won the gold medal.
In the Men's synchronized 10 meter platform diving, Boudia and his teammate, Steele Johnson, came in second place, winning the silver medal for the United States.
This brings his Olympic career medals total to four. The Texas native previously won gold in the Men's 10 meter platform diving, and bronze in the 10 meter synchronized diving in the 2012 Olympic Games that were held in London.
In addition, Boudia has won silver medals at three World Aquatics Championships in 2011, 2013 and 2015 in the 10 meter platform; moreover, he has won a silver and a bronze at the World Championships in synchronized diving in 2009 (Rome) and 2007 (Melbourne) respectively.
The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro were quite bittersweet for Boudia, since his wife, Sonnie, and his baby daughter, Dakoda, were in attendance, so he was able to share these achievements and milestones with his family.
