Stanford’s Kristian Ipsen finished in third place Sunday in the 3-meter springboard at the U.S. Olympic Diving Trials in Federal Way, Wash., just missing his second 2012 Olympic berth by 1.25 points.

Stanford diving will still send two first-time Olympians to London, Ipsen in the synchronized 3-meter springboard and alumna Cassidy Krug in the women’s 3-meter springboard. Stanford coach Rick Schavone will serve as one of Team USA’s coaches.

In Sunday’s men’s 3-meter final, the top three competitors were separated by 2.4 points with one dive to go. 

Chris Colwill took home the top spot with a final score of 1,457.45 points. Colwill scored 99.75 points on his final dive of the day, before Troy Dumais followed with 91.80 points and a total of 1,448.35 points. Ipsen tallied 91.80 points on his final dive, but it wasn’t enough as he totaled a 1,447.10.

Ipsen was edged by his 3-meter synchro teammate, Dumais, for the top two Olympic spots in the event.
