David Boudia: Budding Olympic Diver

One of the youngest famous Noblesville residents is David Boudia, a 21 year old Olympic diver originally from Texas. Despite his relatively young age, David Boudia has already made an impact in the international diving community as a member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team. Born in Abilene, Texas in 1989, Boudia completed most of his education at home before graduating in 2008. Upon his high school graduation, Boudia moved out to the Hoosier state to live in Noblesville, Indiana while attending Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. But Boudia didn’t get his start in diving at Purdue. Rather, he’s been on the board and in the water since 2000, and he practices for a reported thirty hours every week at the National Training Center in Indianapolis.

David Boudia‘s dedication has paid off so far in his meets. He’s been diving professionally since 2005, when he was selected to join the U.S. National Diving Team. That year, he earned bronze, gold, and silver medals in three different competitions at the 2005 Speedo National Diving Championships. 2006 was an even better year for Boudia: he took home medals from the Kaiser Permanente National Championships, the Speedo U.S. Open (in which he won three gold medals), and the FINA Diving World Cup and Grand Prix. Together with his synchronized 10 meter parter Thomas Finchum, Boudia earned the 2007 World Championship bronze medal and the 2009 World Championship silver medal. Boudia was named to the United States Olympic Team in 2008, and he did well in the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing. Most recently, he won the Big 10 Male Tower Diving event in 2010.

Though he’s not yet a fixture in the Noblesville sports community, the star of David Boudia is slowly rising. He’s done incredibly well in his relatively short diving career, picking up almost twenty medals in his four year professional diving career. Additionally, he was the first American to earn over 600 points on six dives. Look for this new famous Noblesville resident to make some waves for the U.S. National Diving Team in the upcoming Olympic games.
