    Can anybody please post the news/article regarding the 3m springboard mens syncronised diving? I heard the news about the mistake by the chinese duo but i didn't catch it on tv... Can someone please tell me exactly what happened? Its only stated that they made a mistake in the newspaper but they never wrote what happened... I was hoping to look for a picture of the duo... Thank you..

    I'm also very interested to hear more about this. I heard that one of the guys slipped and then went flat into the water like a pancake. Is that true? Must have been quite a sight. :rolleyes: :eek:

    yea its true....the chinese had a 12 point lead but Wang Kenan slippped and flopped into the pool on the final dive. they got no points for that dive and dropped to the eighth place. such a pity...

    whats more amazing is that the russians screwed up their last dive too cuz one of them knocked the diving board. and finally, the americans, who were in second place also screwed up their last dive.......

    and the greeks got the gold....

    lol, they're saying that the greek gods must've helped them and caused a miracle...

    yeah. the 3m syncrhonized diving is the strangest one. 3 top nations falters one after another, and then the host nation underdogs won!

    they must have put slick oil on that diving board! ;)
