    Haha! That's the first I've seen of the video since it was removed everywhere before I could check it out.

    Thanks for posting.

    Finally got to see it before NBC and the Olympic's committee had it removed. He should have gotten a 1.0. It's not like he missed the water.

    Re: Worst dive in Olympic history

    He still did 3 flips. He should have gotten a pity point for that. I agree with the poster ^^ that if you hit the water, you should get at least a point.

    Re: Worst dive in Olympic history

    There was a Chinese diver who dove out too far during the prelims the other day and pulled a mild bellyflop. His scores ranged from 1.5 to 4.0. Not in this guy's class, but the Chinese diver is a medal favorite and didn't slip.

    Re: Worst dive in Olympic history

    Some diver that has no shot at a medal ought to just go up their and drop a can opener on them. Direct the water right at the judges.
