FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) — Abby Johnston and Kelci Bryant have earned the first two spots on the U.S. Olympic diving team.
They narrowly won the 3-meter springboard synchro final on Thursday night, giving Johnston her first trip to the Olympics and Bryant her second.
Johnston and Bryant totaled 956.40 points in the final, with scores having carried over from the semifinal and preliminary rounds earlier in the week. Kassidy Cook and 2008 Olympian Christina Loukas finished second at 955.98.
Johnston and Bryant survived a tight final in which they never led by more than six points. Just two points separated them from Cook and Loukas over the final three dives.
Amanda Burke and Summer Allman finished third at 806.10.
