Olympic diver David Boudia was in the very last possible rank to move on into the semi-finals in the 2012 Olympics. He surprised the world when he came back to crush China and Great Britain and take gold in the finals. This was not the first time Boudia had to conquer something great in his life.
Boudia talks to Soledad O’Brien and the “Starting Point” team this morning about his fear of heights and how he overcame it to become an Olympic champion.
"I actually drew out the dives on pieces of paper and so when I went to practice I was able to already do the dives in my head a thousand times," Boudia says.
The Olympic gold medalist also discusses his experience at the 2012 Olympics and the advice he received from legendary diver Greg Louganis.
