3m Springboard Flail.

Oooh. That has GOT to hurt.

Germany's Stephan Feck attempted a somersault, but lost the grip on one leg which saw him spin out of control and land flat on the water flat on his back with a huge thud.

And there it is. They used the "F" word.

... I think they said "Feck."

What's the difference?

The letter 'u.'

My back hurt just looking at that.

Chris Colwill put on a craptacular diving exhibition of his own for the US in the semifinals as well. Sorry I have a story and no video.

Fecking tosser.

Maybe he was going for the triple Lindy!

I think the FAIL tag has found its home.

Oh it farking DOES, like almost nothing you can imagine, it's like being stung by a swarm of angry bees at the same time you are getting hit by a truck.

/used to swim and dive competitively when I was about 12-13
//That happened to me more than once.

That was more like a somersault can opener. Attempt.

I prefer his approach. They should adjust the criteria:

Perpendicularity? 10
Big Splash? 10
Perceived Pain? 10
Body Redness on pool exit? 10
Appears unintentional? 6.5

Gold.

Yeah, I watched that one. I'll give them credit for being amazing athletes though. Truly impressive. And of course, it's my girl's favorite sport because of their physiques. I'm not sure she actually realizes they're competing in something.

It should just be renamed the "FECK" tag. Poor guy. Trains his whole life for that moment. Whoops.

This comment made me laugh out loud. Give that man the gold!

Just goes to show how hard it is to grab your legs while you're spinning in midair after jumping off a springboard in front of fans, cameras, competitors and judges from around the world with milliseconds to act before you end up underwater. Sounds so easy though....

Ha, that dive got its own thread. It's still a better dive than nearly anyone else on earth could do, but having watched the entire competition - it was a massive belloy flop by comparison. I hooted so loudly when he slammed in that I startled my dog.

You can use Google to find a map, but you can't Google the phrase ""looked a bit like the Isle of Man"?

I used to pull those back in the 80's playing this
