TOKYO, Japan — Indiana University graduate Jessica Parratto earned a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
Parratto, who was born in Indianapolis and graduated from IU in 2019, and her partner, Delaney Schnell, finished second in the women's synchronized 10 meter platform diving event Tuesday morning.
The pair scored 310.80 points for their routine. China won gold with a score of 363.78, and Mexico earned bronze with 299.70 points.
Parratto and Schnell are the first-ever Americans to medal in the event and were competing for just the third time together, having teamed suddenly at the U.S. trials after Schnell's partner got hurt.
Parratto finished seventh in the synchronized 10-meter and 10th in the individual 10-meter events at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
