Biography

Jim Henry followed Ken Sitzberger as Indiana University’s leading diver. Sitzberger won the NCAA springboard title from 1965-1967 and Henry continued the streak by winning the next three titles. However, he could not retain Sitzberger’s Olympic championship for Indiana and, after being in the lead in Mexico with three dives remaining, he finally finished in third place.
