2012 London Olympics: Team USA Women Take Silver In Synchronized 3m Springboard

The American duo of Kelci Bryant and Abigail Johnston came through in a big way on Sunday morning from London, as the two female divers brought home a silver medal for their efforts in the women's synchronized three meter springboard event.

Johnston, a Columbus, Ohio, native paired with Bryant to produce a score of 321.90 in their routine, which was good enough to edge Canadian competitors Jennifer Abel and Emilie Heymans' score of 316.80 for second place. The Chinese team of Minxia Wu and He Zi ran away with the gold medal after a 346.20 score, as Wu added to her storied Olympic career with yet another first place medal.

With this silver medal added to their tally, Team USA now has seven total medals for the competition and sits in second place overall. China remains atop the medal leaderboard with nine, including six golds, while Italy continues to hang around in third place with six of its own.
