David Boudia goes it alone Friday for his second chance at a medal in diving.

The Noblesville, Ind., Olympian competes in the 10-meter individual qualifiers after winning bronze last week with diving partner Nick McCrory in the 10-meter synchronized platform dive.

If he qualifies, Boudia moves onto the Saturday finals and potentially another medal in the London Games.

Boudia made his Olympic debut in Beijing, where he placed fifth in the synchronized platform. Boudia and McCrory were considered long shots, but their strength and determination put them over the edge. The former Purdue diver earned his Olympic berth at the trials June 21.

Boudia isn't the only area water-sports athlete to make waves during the Olympics.

Springfield native Kelci Bryant and Abby Johnston earned a silver medal in the 3-meter synchro springboard last Sunday, ending a 12-year medal drought.

Matt Grevers of Lake Forest won gold in the men's 100-meter backstroke on Day 3, and Winnetka's Conor Dwyer won his first gold medal on Day 2, becoming part of history as teammate Michael Phelps become the most decorated Olympian of all time.
