At U.S. Olympic Diving Trials, generations and medalists clash for Tokyo spots

USA Diving had quite the unpredictable cycle since the last Olympics in 2016.

David Boudia, the best American diver over the last decade, took a year off, sold houses, came back, suffered a concussion and switched from the platform to the springboard.

Laura Wilkinson, the last American woman to win Olympic gold in 2000, came out of a six-year retirement, aiming to compete internationally for the first time since 2008.

Delaney Schnell and Sarah Bacon became the first U.S. women to earn individual world championships medals since Wilkinson in 2005.
