DURHAM, N.C.- Duke's Abby Johnston and Nick McCrory will travel to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Thursday-Sunday, May 5-8, to compete in the AT&T USA Diving Grand Prix.

The AT&T USA Grand Prix is the only U.S. stop on the six-country FINA international Grand Prix tour. The USA Grand Prix competition is one of the most prestigious diving events in the world, and has so far gathered the participation of 21 different countries. Both Johnston and McCrory qualified for the event after their performances at the USA Diving Winter Nationals in Columbus, Ohio back in February.

The two will again compete in their strongest events, the men's platform (McCrory) and the women's three-meter (Johnston). The competition for these two individual events begins on Friday. The synchronized events for both the platform and three-meter begin on Saturday, with finals for both the individual and synchro events being held Sunday. McCrory will once again partner with top-ranked and now-turned pro diver, David Boudia. Johnston will pair with Winter Nationals partner, Christina Loukas.
