About Nick:

In the past two years Nick McCrory has upset what was a quiet balance of power on platform for the U.S., and placed himself in a position to challenge David Boudia for the right to be known as the best tower diver in the country. While a battle looms on the horizon as Thomas Finchum returns from shoulder surgery, Nick has become a regular synchro teammate for Boudia and the pair just missed an international medal at both the 2010 FINA World Cup and 2011 Worlds. 2012 will be an interesting year as McCrory, Finchum and Boudia continue to battle for supremacy from 10 meters up.
