Dammit Enty... The video is "rejected" and this creates a Google fiasco for my lazy ass.

FSP said...

I just finished reading about this on Yahoo. Poor guy - you know he's done that exact same dive 1000 plus times and each one was perfectly executed. I didn't see the video, but from the pics, I wondered if he had some sort of leg cramp??? Really feel for him...

oh man, poor guy.

Glad it failed.
The Olympic Gods are warning you, Enty:)

IOC is working overtime blocking their videos everywhere.

Make a GIF out of them instead.

FSP said...

"Instead of completing the maneuver and disappearing into the water with barely a ripple, he landed flat on the middle of his back. The resounding splat prompted a loud groan from the crowd, while each judge scored him zero." - I finally got to see the video. I think the description is better.

My husband said if Germany has a terrible English-tabloid newspaper, their headline could be, "What the Feck?"

Poor guy. At the end of the day, he's at the Olympics and I'm on the couch just watching and eating chips.

Poor thing.

.robert said...

@Snapdragon, ...at the Olympics with your whole country watching.

Agent**It said...

With the World watching ..
I read FSP's description rather than watch it. Hate to even "hear" it.

pilly said...

OUCH!

It has been shown several times in Britain and I can’t help feeling so sorry for the poor guy. He was in the foetal position and when he came ready to straighten up and slip into the water he couldn’t do it. You can’t help but feel for him and wish his mother would come and bundle him up in her arms.

My heart breaks for him. Poor guy!

The Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards of our generation.

Apparently he slipped on a banana peel.

Maria said...

I saw it when it aired here with my husband. We both had the WTF reaction. Totally shocking. I felt bad for him.

The Effervescent Diva said...

So now we can use "feck" as an adjective and be suitable for work, as in "boy, he really fecked that one."

alliwholovessomuch said...

One headline I saw here in aus was oh feck. Worst dive ever!...Poor guy lol

Sian said...

Lol I watched this happen, they keep on showing it and I feel bad for the guy - notice they don't keep on showing the British guy who got 0 for his final dive - slipped off the board did a somersault and entered the pool as if you were jumping into it, that was really embarrassing too.
