Troy Catapults into Lead after Voluntaries

Who says voluntary dives don’t matter. After the prelim and semis of day two at the Olympic Diving Trials in St. Louis it is the difference between the first and second place divers on the 3-meter springboard.

Phillip Jones, Tennessee Diving, won the prelims with a score of 436.23. Troy Dumais, CTC, was second with 428.01 and Justin Wilcock is third with a score of 422.07. The rest of the field fell behind the top three by 40 points after the prelims.

During the voluntary round it was all Dumais. His near perfect voluntary round outscored Jones by 20 points and move Dumais into the lead going into the finals on Friday. Justin Wilcock also made a move on Jones during the voluntary round and going into the finals the two are separated by less than a point. It is going to be a great contest to see who will make the Olympic Team.

So going into the finals it is Troy Dumais in first place 13 points ahead of Phillip Jones, 678.03 to 665.31. Justin Wilcock, who is in 3rd place with 664.38, closely follows them. As for the rest of the field, Clayton Moss, Kentucky Diving Club, is in 4th place with a score of 603.03 and Matt Bricker, Auburn Diving, is in 5th, 597.60.
