This is Kelci Bryant's second Olympic Games.

Kelci Bryant is an Olympic veteran looking to break through and win her first medal for Team USA. Bryant came very close to medaling during the 2008 summer games:

Kelci Bryant teamed up with Ariel Rittenhouse for the 2008 Olympics and the duo placed fourth in the 3m synchronized springboard, finishing just over four points behind third-place Germany in the standings. Bryant said the defeat has fueled her drive to make the 2012 Olympic team and earn a medal. Her new synchro partner is Abby Johnston, who attends and dives for Duke. Bryant also competes in 3m individual.
