2004 O Trials
Dumais Duo Dominates, Next Stop: Athens

The first plane tickets to Athens, Greece have two names on them, Troy Dumais and Justin Dumais. The Dynamic Duo yielded no mercy on the field of divers having qualified for the Olympic Team without needing their final dive.

Troy and Justin scored 8's and 9's throughout the night and proved to be too much for the rest of the field to handle. The Dumais final score of 684.33 was a full dive ahead of Phillip Jones and Jevon Tarntino. The Tennessee Diving Duo was second with 615.54. Justin Wilcock, CTC, and Clayton Moss, Kentucky Diving, were 3rd with a score of 594.90.

The evening was electrifying for the sport of Diving with a near capacity crowd in attendance. There are a limited tickets remaining for the rest of the weekend with some of the events already sold out.
