Miami freshman David Dinsmore dethroned Purdue sophomore Steele Johnson in the platform diving at the 2017 NCAA Championships Saturday night. Dinsmore was beat out by Johnson at the Olympic Trials last summer and went back and forth with the 2015 NCAA champ round after round, with Dinsmore staying ahead each time. Dinsmore won with 528.20 to Johnson’s 506.05. Johnson missed a chance at sweeping all three boards after he won the 1m and 3m events here.

Ohio State’s Colin Zeng (478.25), Purdue’s Brandon Loschiavo (445.75), Texas A&M’s Tyler Henschel (437.35), Southern California’s Dashiell Enos (428.30), Minnesota’s Matt Barnard (422.90) and Stanford’s Theodore Miclau (391.85) also competed in the A-final.

Miami now has eight NCAA titles in the platform diving, the most of any school. Dinsmore joins Imre Lengyel (2002), Kyle Prandi (2001), Tyce Routson (2000, 1997, 1995), Rio Ramirez (1999) and Bryan Gillooly (1996) as winners in the event for the Hurricanes.
