David Boudia Represents a Rainbow of Black, Gold, Red, White & Blue

David Boudia, former Boilermaker and current all-world diver, will be doing his qualifying diving this week for the Olympics. According to the site, 120 or so of the country's best divers will be competing for 14 spots.

NBC and NBC Sports Network will be covering quite a bit of it, so check out the schedule.

Based on what I've heard so far, he's in a pretty good position to qualify. Best of luck, David! Keep making us proud.

He's not the only potential Boiler Olympian. Former women's association football (soccer) star Lauren Sesselmann (2001-2005) has been a regular starter for the Canadian national team since her first call-up in September. They have already qualified, but they have to cut the roster down to 18 from 22, so we'll see what happens.

Of course, since she was born and raised in Wisconsin and competes for Canada, that doesn't exactly count in your mind, does it J-Money?
