About Troy:

Troy Dumais has done just about everything in diving that one could hope for - five world championship medals, 35 national titles and he has qualified for four Olympics! But he is still chasing the one goal that has eluded him - an Olympic medal. London might be his last chance (never say never though) but despite his age, he has proven that he can compete as evidenced by two silvers at the 2009 World Championships and another at the 2010 World Cup. His collaboration with Kristian Ipsen in synchro has been a perfect match, giving the U.S. a legitimate hope for a medal at the Olympics in 2012.
