Former Hoosier diver Christina Loukas and partner Kassidy Cook narrowly missed qualifying for the 2012 London Olympics on Thursday, falling less than a half-point shy of wining the women’s synchronized three-meter springboard finals at the USA Diving Olympic Trials in Federal Way, Wash.
In the synchronized three-meter springboard, Loukas and Cook finished with a score of 955.98 over three rounds, just 0.42 points behind winners Kelci Bryant and Abby Johnston (956.40).
Only the top pair makes the Olympic team.
Loukas, an IU graduate and 2009 NCAA Champion, can still make the Olympic team in the women’s three-meter springboard competition. Heading into Saturday’s final round, Loukas sits in second place with 679.65 points, 39.20 points behind leader Cassidy Krug (718.85).
The top two finishers in the springboard competition will make the U.S. Olympic team.
All USA Diving Olympic Trials events take place at the Weyerhauser Aquatic Center.
