NCAA men’s platform champ cannot try for Olympics

Colin Zeng

Although his scores are high enough to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Diving Trials, Zeng isn’t eligible to participate in that event June 18-26 in Indianapolis because he’s not a U.S. citizen.

“He’d have a shot at making our (Olympic) team,” OSU diving coach Justin Sochor said. “He’s good enough to beat everybody else in the United States. He can’t just walk out there and win that easily, but he’s capable of it.”
