Cassidy Krug is a diver competing at the 2012 London Summer Olympics for the USA.

American springboard diver Cassidy Krug has been around diving her whole life, as her parents are both coaches in the sport. She attempted to make the 2004 Olympic team but finished eighth in 3m. Krug bounced back and recorded several top-five results at national and international meets in the following years, and entered the 2008 Olympic season as a favorite to make the team. However, a back injury set her back six months before the Olympic Trials, and when she did return it was too late. She placed eighth and missed the team.

Krug decided to step away from diving after 2008. She graduated from Stanford University one year prior, so she got a job working as the marketing coordinator at the Stanford Alumni Association and started to live like any other post-graduate. But soon after, Krug realized she missed diving too much and knew she had to make one more run at making the Olympic team. She kept her job at Stanford and began working, once again, with coach Rick Schavone in the fall of 2009. Her single focus is to compete for the U.S. in London.

Although Krug did not compete at the Athens Olympics in 2004, she was at the Games in a different role: a runner for NBC at the diving venue. Her mother has worked for NBC as a diving statistician at several Olympics, so she was able to help Krug secure the position. Krug's duties included everything from going on coffee runs to helping coordinate interviews.

With two parents who coach diving, Krug was exposed to the sport at an early age. Her dad is the head coach at the University of Pittsburgh and her mother coaches at the Pitt Aquatic Club.

Not only was Krug a childhood diver, but she was also heavily into gymnastics. When she was 15, however, she decided to quit the latter and start seriously thinking about being a diver. When she enrolled at Stanford three years later and began working with Schavone, she started to blossom. "I improved so much my freshman year at Stanford," Krug said in a TeamUSA.org story.
