Boudia, a 2007 graduate of Noblesville High School, won a bronze medal with former partner Nicholas McCrory in the 10m platform synchro dive at the 2012 Summer Olympics. He took home a gold medal in the individual 10m platform dive – the first U.S. diver to do so since Laura Wilkinson in 2000. It was also the first gold medal by a male diver in the 10m platform event for the U.S. since Greg Louganis won the gold at the 1988 Summer Olympics.
The medal is the first Olympic placing for Johnson, an Indianapolis native and Purdue University diver. Johnson also won a bronze medal at the 2014 FINA Diving World Cup in Shanghai, China.
