    IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Former University of Iowa diver Deidre Freeman was named to the 2014 AT&T Olympic Performance Squad, USA Diving announced Wednesday. Freeman was 1-of-12 women, and 1-of-25 divers overall to be named to the squad.

    The AT&T Olympic Performance squad includes divers who most exhibit the skill and determination it takes to become 2016 Olympic Team members. Those selected to the squad for 2014 include divers who competed at the 2013 FINA World Championships, have been named to the 2014 FINA World Cup team, or have been identified by High Performance Director Steve Foley as divers who could play a key role in shaping the 2016 team.

    Freeman competed at the FINA World Championships this past summer, placing 11th in the 1-meter springboard with a point total of 236.30, and taking 22nd in the 3-meter springboard competition. Freeman, along with teammate Amanda Burke competed in the FINA/NVC Diving World Series event this past weekend in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Freeman and Burke used a pair of dives in the third and fourth round of the five-dive event to propel them into second place heading into the final round. The duo would finish sixth, in the eight-team field, with a point total of 273.30.

    A review of the A&T Olympic Performance Squad is conducted at the end of each year. Pending U.S. qualification, a maximum of 16 divers will compete for Team USA at the 2016 Olympic Games.
