Sunday was a great day for Team USA in London, and a Hoosier athlete was part of the success.
Kelci Bryant, a West Lafayette Harrison High School graduate, teamed up with Abby Johnston to win silver in synchronized diving.
China dominated Sunday, with Wu Minxia and He Zi winning gold with 346.20 points. Bryant, 23, and Johnston, 22, had 321.90 points, and Canada's Emilie Heymans and Jennifer Abel took bronze with 316.80
"It's a team effort. We both did an amazing job and we're just glad to walk away with some hardware and proof of everything we've done," said Bryant in an interview with Eyewitness Sports Director Dave Calabro in London Sunday night.
Johnston said she'd been training non-stop for the past four years and diving for the past ten years, "so it's been a lot of sacrifices and this just makes it all worth it."
Johnston and Bryant showed off their silver bling. Johnston joked that she would "pull it out when I'm feeling under-appreciated! Hey, look!"
