What did you do on your summer vacation?
For Meghan Houston, the answer to that question is winning three U.S. Diving National Championships.
Houston claimed her third U.S. Junior National Championship, and followed that up with U.S. Senior titles in three-meter synchronized diving and one-meter individual.
"I'd never made an individual senior finals before,” she said. “I was just hoping to make finals."
As the meet unfolded, Houston never even checked her scores during prelims.
"When I looked, ‘Oh my gosh, I'm in second,’" she said.
