Ipsen Wins First NCAA Title on 3M

By March 24, 2012

Follow me on:

Kristian IpsenIn a flip-flop of 1-meter, freshman Kristian Ipsen of Stanford won the Men's NCAA 3-meter Diving Championship with Drew Livingston of Texas finishing second.

Ipsen turned the tables on Livingston on "high board," building up a lead in the first four dives but having to hold on after leaving a reverse 3 1/2 in tuck short of vertical and opening the door for Livingston on the final dive.

On that final dive, Livingston's forward 4 1/2 in tuck had 4 tenths more difficulty than Ipsen's reverse 1 1/2, with 3 1/2 twists and the Texas senior was  in a position to win the event if Ipsen faltered. But Ipsen calmly put his dive into the water for scores of 8 and 8.5 to win his first NCAA title.

Finishing in third was Missouri sophomore David Bonuchi.

The diving competition at the NCAA Championships will conclude in Federal Way, Wash., on Saturday with the 10-meter platform event.
