David Boudia (Noblesville, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) and Steele Johnson (Carmel, Ind./West Lafayette, Ind.) won the silver medal in synchronized 10-meter Friday at the FINA Diving World Series in Windsor, Ontario.

Boudia and Johnson were in the lead with two rounds to go after scoring 90.78 points on their fourth-round reverse 3 ½ tuck. Up next was the difficult front 4 ½ tuck, the same dive Johnson missed for just 27.75 points in last week’s individual World Championships trials preliminaries before he switched to the easier front 3 ½ pike in the semifinals and finals at the trials. At the World Series, Boudia and Johnson came through for 68.82 points on the front 4 ½ tuck. The dive dropped them to third place with one dive to go, but they closed out their list 89.64 points on their back 2 ½ with 2 ½ twists to move up one spot for the silver medal.
