Men's Springboard Diving

I guess we can say that China is dominating the diving events this year. They've won all the gold medals.

He Chong just kicked some serious Speedo ass. in his words, "I'm very, very, very happy about my performance." I'd call him the Usain Bolt of diving, but that conjures up images of Chong with his bathing suit half peeled off, doing a cannonball on his last dive.

American Troy Dumais ended up with the dreaded "Devil's Dive"-- he placed 6th in three consecutive Olympiads. Dumais shapeshifted into an asp and slithered into a drain pipe upon learning of his sixth place finish.
I dunno, watching the guys shower after a dive is a little weird. The showers seem pretty nice, however.
