Although the Wall Street Journal did a great profile on Boilermaker Steven LoBue as he prepared for the Red Bull Cliff Diving Championship in Malcesine, Italy (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323936404578579653691062488.html), surprisingly it was another Purdue alum that narrowly edged him and hoisted the first place trophy (http://www.redbullcliffdiving.com/en_US/article/david-colturi-tops-lot).
David Colturi was a seven-time All-American at Purdue and a friend and fellow teammate of Steven. With a total score of 469.4, he took home the top prize. Steven did not go empty handed as he placed second with a score of 467.
