Brittany Viola Eliminated From Olympics in Diving Semifinals

Brittany Viola, the daughter of former Met and current Savannah Sand Gnats Pitching Coach Frank Viola was eliminated from the Olympic diving competition early Thursday morning in the women’s 10m platform competition. She finished 15th in the Semis and only the top 12 finishers qualified for the Finals.

Bummer for her, but on the other hand, she was 1. an Olympian and the 15th best in the world in something. It probably hurts right now, but that has to be some consolation, right?
