A St. Louis area teenager is heading to the Olympics.
Tyler Downs of Ballwin, Missouri defeated a pair of Olympians to win the men’s 3-meter springboard title at the U.S. diving trials.
This earns the 17-year-old a trip to the Tokyo Games.
Downs beat out Andrew Copobianco, who took second, as well as David Boudia, who won the 10-meter title at the 2012 London Games.
