Abby Johnston

Abby JohnstonSport: Diving

Nation: United States of America

DOB: November 16, 1989

Hometown: Upper Arlington, OH

Career Highlights: Johnston was a gymnast for nine years before exclusively switching to diving due to a back injury. The move has now paid off handsomely, as she enters her first Olympics a bonafide medal contender in 3m synchronized springboard alongside partner Kelci Bryant. The duo took first place at the US Olympic trials in June with a total score of 956.4, and earlier in the 2012 season won the winter national championships. Johnston won't be competing in any individual events in London, although she won gold in individual 3m springboard at the USA spring national championships in 2009. Johnston attended Duke, where she became that school's first NCAA diving champion in 2011 by winning in individual 3m springboard.
