Southlake divers Bryce Klein and Bradley Christensen finished fourth overall in the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials in the Men’s Synchronized 3-Meter Springboard event. The finals took place Friday, June 22 and the duo was placed in fifth going in. The top three finishers ahead of Klein and Christensen have previously been in the Olympics or were NCAA winners.
Christensen is a senior-to-be at Argyle Liberty Christian and dives for GC Divers with Klein. Both are set to graduate high school in 2013. Klein, a senior-to-be at Carroll and former state diving champion, also competed individually in the finals for the U.S. Olympic Trials in diving. Going into the 3-Meter Springboard, he was in 16th place and finished 10th overall. Carroll diving coach Carolyn Hyorchuk said Klein will set his sights on the next Olympics in four years.
