DURHAM, N.C. - London-bound divers Abby Johnston and Nick McCrory, as well as Duke diving head coach Drew Johansen, met with the local media Monday to discuss their preparations for the upcoming 2012 Olympic Games.

The two Duke divers will represent the United States at the London Olympics after qualifying for the U.S. Olympic squad two weeks ago at the team trials in Federal Way, Wash.  Johnston partnered with Kelci Bryant to capture the women's 3-meter synchronized title, edging Kassidy Cook and Christina Loukas by .42 points to secure the Olympic berth in thrilling fashion. McCrory will compete on the 10-meter platform individually following a second-place performance at the trials, and is also expected to vie for a medal in the men's 10-meter synchronized competition along with David Boudia.

In addition, Johansen has been nominated to serve as the head coach of the U.S. Olympic diving team in London.

The women's 3-meter synchronized competition at the 2012 Olympic Games will be contested as a straight final with five rounds of dives on Sunday, July 29, while the men's 10-meter synchronized event - also a straight final with six rounds of diving - is slated for Monday, July 30. The men's individual 10-meter platform competition will begin with a preliminary round on Friday, Aug. 10, followed by the semifinals and finals on Saturday, Aug. 11. All diving events will be held at the London Aquatics Centre.
