Alcoa-made springboards used in Olympics

Olympic divers in Beijing are jumping off aluminum springboards made at Alcoa Inc.’s plant in Lafayette, according to The Journal & Courier of Lafayette.

The boards were extruded in Lafayette and sent to a Nevada company, Duraflex International, to be finished and coated.

The Lafayette plant also supplied boards used in U.S. Olympics Diving Trials held in June in Indianapolis.

Alcoa is headquartered in Pittsburgh.
