Greg Louganis Probably Got Started That Way

Back when I was a kid, the city pool in Bridgeport had the greatest spring diving boards. I'll swear, the Olympics didn't have that quality of boards. The town must have called a bond election to afford the dang things. But the life guards would always get on to us if we jumped more than once at the end of the board. Now I know why.

Lard is clearly to blame for the mishap, and I don't think it was on the board.

Was he trying to perform the Triple Lindy?

Ya know, sometimes things just don't work out like you planned.

Hilarious! 9:58, that triple lindy turned into a belly flop.

Barry, take a moment to reclaim your ROOTS. If you ever swam in the city pool, it was because the bullies at the birthday party pushed the short guy in the water for laughs.
You swam and learned to swim at the Bridgeport Country Club pool, don't fool these good bloggers.
