David’s Olympic Journey

David decided he was going to be an Olympian at age seven while watching the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games Atlanta 1996. Though diving once petrified him, he began his diving career at age 11 in 2000 and made it to the world stage in 2008.


The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle.

David’s biggest setback happened in February 2018, when he suffered a concussion off the 10-meter platform. But this setback would actually open the door to a new event. After having earned all of his hardware on the 10-meter platform, he switched to the 3-meter springboard on his journey to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.  A more-experienced Olympian, David is working on training smarter rather than harder. He’s even developing a new apparatus to help him train. For David, setting goals for himself has allowed him to overcome life’s obstacles and accomplish what he set out to do.


The definition of strength.

“The power is what has surprised me the most. This truck has so much power, whether I am using it to haul 2000 pounds or get up a muddy hill, it's like it's driving normally.”

Rule every road.

“I live in rural Indiana and having a truck is almost a must. Whether I’m hauling something in the bed or using it to get across rugged terrain, it's perfect!”
