A Springfield native puts an end to a twelve-year medal drought after taking silver in synchronized diving Sunday afternoon at the London Olympics.
Kelci Bryant, and her teammate Abby Johnston, won the silver medal during the 3-meter synchronized diving competition at Aquatics Centre.
The last American to bring home a medal in synchronized diving was Laura Wilkinson during the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Bryant was born in Springfield but, according to her bio, has never trained in the capital city. In 1997 she began training for diving in St. Louis, then trained at Illinois State University and later Perdue. Currently, Bryant trains at the National Training Center in Indianapolis.
