"This is what I do it for," Dumais said. "The adrenaline rush. It's the most unbelievable feeling. I think I can do anything right now. Does anyone need anything done?

Dwight Dumais hit the board on a dive Saturday, earning scores as low as 1.5, so it wasn't a great day, that one missed dive leading to a 10th-place finish. Justin Dumais is still getting back into competitive form, since recently taking significant time off to do his other job — flying jets for the South Carolina Air National Guard and spending three months in Iraq. Finishing fifth wasn't the best but wasn't unexpected. Troy Dumais won a bronze medal Saturday in the men's three-meter springboard, his 56th medal at a national championship but one that could have been better, Troy said.

Justin Dumais has finished eating his pasta and salad. He is comfortable, relaxed, looking like a financial analyst or a politician in his suit and tie. Prim almost. Next to Justin, 21, sits his brother Troy, 20. He is chattering away, about how close he came to making the 1996 Olympic diving team. Justin starts talking too. Suddenly, seriously. "I almost died twice this year," he says. Now this is a conversation stopper. Troy looks and smiles a little. Justin begins to tell his story.

Buena High junior Justin Dumais goes to great distances for his diving. Dumais, with the rest of his family, often travels from Ventura to USC to practice with Trojan Dive Club Coach Jeff Schaffer. The Dumais family has gone as far as to rent a house in Glendale to ease commuting problems, but Dumais, along with younger brothers Troy and Brice, still attends classes at Buena. The rewards for the commitment are justified by the way the Dumais brothers dominate at the high school level.
