wow

Now that's a dive.

-------------------------------------------------------
Diving provides platform for the individual - Times Online
Heymans, consistently ahead of Wang, threw in a really solid dive to tell Chen that only something pretty close to perfection on the very last dive would be good enough.

Chen obliged. Oh, I love it when a medal is won not by the failure of one but by the success of another. The last dive was a corker. A back 2 somersault with 1 twists piked, since you ask. She hit that water, not with a splish or splash, but with that deep thrum that comes only with a perfectly vertical entry.

So it was a victory for the collective, or perhaps for the individual. It all depends on how you interpret these things. But despite the efforts of the old boys, the individual has a voice, in this sport and in this country, and it is increasingly loud.
