Boudia edges out rivals to claim gold - London 2012 - Diving

11/08/2012

David Boudia produced an impressive display to claim gold for the USA in tonight's 10m Platform Diving final.
Great Britain's Tom Daley led by 0.15 points from world champion Qiu Bo and Boudia heading into the final dive.

But while Daley won a single score of 10 for his final back dive, it was lower on difficulty than his rivals to allow Boudia to clinch victory.

Qiu finished with the silver, while Daley walked away with the bronze.
