Swimming World Radio Speaks With Three-Time Big Ten Diver of the Year and of the Championships Christina Loukas

PHOENIX, Arizona, February 14. JUNIOR Christina Loukas of Indiana University, coming off her third straight season earning Big Ten Diver of the Year and of the Championships honors, took time out of her busy schedule to speak with Swimming World Radio.

This past weekend, Loukas won the platform at Big Tens with a school-record score of 358.80, giving her a clean sweep in the diving events. Loukas took the one-meter on Thursday and the three-meter on Friday. She became only the second Indiana diver to sweep the diving events, joining Sara Reiling-Hildebrand (2003) in the IU record book.

She also joined Mary Fischbach of Michigan (1988 – the first year the Big Ten offered platform as a scored event) and Carrie McCambridge of Purdue (2004) as the only divers to claim Big Ten sweeps.

Listen in via the buttons on the right as Swimming World Radio, hosted by Brent Rutemiller, talks with Christina about her diving career and the mental preparation involved in the sport.
