U.S. Synchro Championships
Young (2011-15) picked up two medals at the 2016 U.S. Synchro Championships that ran from April 6-10 at the North Side Swim Centre in San Antonio, Texas.
Young first teamed up with Krysta Palmer of the Nevada Diving Club, to grab silver in the women’s 10m synchro with a score of 521.76 before adding gold in the mixed 10m synchro event with a score of 268.23.
“Diving mixed platform today was great,” Young said. We synch up naturally. I feel like he helps me become a better diver because he jumps so high and his form is so good, so to match him makes me better.”
