Krista Klein won her third national championship and Patrick Jeffrey earned his first in the three-meter springboard Saturday at the U.S. Diving Championships. Klein beat defending champion Wendy Lucero by 37 points to win her first U.S. title in the three-meter event since the indoor championships in April of 1990. Jeffrey, a perennial finalist but never a national champion, also had a strong finish and got some help when two veteran champions performed poorly down the stretch.

Patrick Jeffrey did not regret that he had only one dive to give for his country. It was enough. It was as good as gold. Or as good as silver, at least, because it saved him second place behind Greg Louganis in the men's 10-meter platform competition at Sunday's U.S. Olympic diving trials, booking his passage to Seoul. And so, the Olympic trials of Bruce Kimball are over at last, and nothing remains but his own trial. He is not going to South Korea to fight for any medals.
