TOKYO, Japan — More than 600 athletes are representing the United States at the Tokyo Olympics and a number of them are from Indiana.
Here are the Hoosier athletes to watch on Tuesday, Aug. 3 (Note: All dates and times listed are in eastern time):
Andrew Capobianco — Diving
Andrew Capobianco, a 21-year-old student at Indiana University, competed in the men's 3-meter springboard diving competition.
Capobianco narrowly qualified for the semifinals Monday morning after finishing 17th in the preliminary round with a score of 385.50. He finished 10th in the semifinal Monday night, claiming one of the 12 spots in the final.
However, Capobianco didn't quite pull it off the finals. Although his first two dives put him in medal contention, he was fighting a back injury and ended up 10th with 401.70 points. China earned gold and silver, while Great Britain won bronze.
The finals of the men's 3-meter springboard event will re-air in primetime Tuesday beginning at 8 p.m. ET on WTHR Channel 13.
Tyler Downs, a 17-year-old Purdue recruit from Fishers, finished 23rd in the preliminary round with a score of 348.70 but did not advance to the semifinals.
Capobianco teamed with IU grad Michael Hixon to win a silver medal last week in men's synchronized 3-meter springboard.
Chloé Dygert — Cycling
Chloé Dygert was born in Indianapolis and now calls Brownsburg home. She competed in her third Olympic event in the women's team pursuit early Tuesday.
Dygert and Team USA lost to Great Britain in the first round Tuesday morning by less than 1 second, which meant they could not win the gold medal.
Team USA's time of 4:07.562 in the first round was fast enough to earn them a place in the bronze medal race against Canada, whom they defeated by more than 1 second with a time of 4:08.040 to place third.
