Craig Lincoln

Craig LincolnOlympian Craig Lincoln entered his first diving competition in the eighth grade, and never looked back. His diving success took him all over the United States and Canada, to Europe and South America, and culminated with the Bronze Medal at the Olympic Games. Along the way, he earned the honor of being a five time “National Champion” and named a six time “All-American”. Craig made many, many friends!

Currently, Craig leads training seminars all over the world. But Craig still loves to dive. In 2001, Craig returned to the Munich Olympic Stadium for the World Masters Games.

This time he won the Gold..
