Hixon recently won a surprise silver medal with synchro partner Sam Dorman.  Diver Jack Laugher (GBR) and  Cao Yuan (CHN) are also coming off of gold and bronze medals, respectively, in synchro at this olympics. Ipsen holds his own bronze medal from synchronized springboard last year, where he competed with Troy Dumais. All of these men will be seeking individual Olympic glory.
