Boudia honored by Richardson, state legislators
State Rep. Kathy Richardson (R-Noblesville) took time March 6 to honor David Boudia for his dedication and level of commitment to a sport he loves, diving. Boudia’s ultimate goal is to win a gold medal in diving at this summer’s Olympics in London.
“David is an incredibly talented diver. His hard work and dedication to something he loves represents the very best of the athletic spirit,” said Richardson. “I know he will represent the state of Indiana and the U.S. fantastically this summer.”
Boudia grew up in Noblesville and is now a senior at Purdue University. While at Purdue, he has become a six-time NCAA champion, a 2011 Big Ten Athlete of the Year for all sports, the USA Diving Athlete of the Year and Purdue Male Athlete of the Year. He is also a 16-time national champion. Boudia turned pro in 2011, and his focus is now on the 2012 Olympics in London.
“As David prepares for the Olympics, I wish him the best of luck,” said Richardson. “I know our whole community will rally around this Noblesville native as he goes for the gold!”
Boudia was honored by Richardson with an official resolution on the House floor. She commended him for rising to “a level of performance achieved by few athletes in any field.”
