on Chinese divers …

Chinese divers won all four events on the final day to sweep the 2013 FINA USA Diving Grand Prix on Sunday.

U.S. Olympic medalist Troy Dumais took silver in the 3-meter springboard behind He Chao’s 53.25 points. Dumais, who won a bronze medal in synchronized 3-meter platform at the London Olympics, said he’s not ready to focus on the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games yet.

“I’m taking it a day at a time. I can’t promise anything,” Dumais said. “You don’t make money in diving, I’m sorry – it’s a hobby, it’s not a career. I have to put some energy elsewhere. The only problem is, when you do that, it takes away from your diving. It’s a balancing act.”
