Johnson collected 532.70 points to add to his win in the one-meter on day one.  He joins fellow Boilermaker David Boudia, who won the three-meter and platform events in 2009.

Indiana’s James Conner, an Australian Olympian, took second overall with 514.80 points, while Minnesota’s Matt Barnard claimed third overall with 473.80 points. Arizona’s Rafael Quintero snared fourth with 471.30 points.

Both Johnson and Quintero had perfect 10 dives during the finale.
