June 28, 2008: Divers

I alway picture Olympic class swimmers, as slim, with big shoulders. Streamlined, for speed through the water, and big shoulders from miles, and more miles, of powerful strokes.

Evidently divers don't fit that mold, as these two competitors at the U.S Olympic diving trials in Indianapolis, look more like body builders.

Good luck, folks.

They don't look so happy do they?

Last time I dove I landed with one shoulder on the side of the pool. I don't dive anymore.

Cool pics. Is it just me or does the woman look more muscular than the man?

Don't let them fool you, they down took those pictures lying down.
I thought this might be a spotting of the elusive Seak!

Red face

Do you think the guys wear some sort of protective apparatus in case they hit the water wrong? I think that would hurt much more than a belly-flop.

It makes sense that they would have different body compositions than swimmers. I think they use their muscles differently than the swimmers. They need muscle strength to launch themselves into the gravity well () whereas swimmers don't fight gravity. And they need flexibility and strength to contort and throw themselves into the diving positions.

I'm gonna have to pay close attention to their expressions this time when I watch the Olympics. I wonder if they're screwed up (faces) in anticipation of hitting the water, or just intense concentration, or what.

Bruce has it. That's their cum-face.

[Disclaimer: these are serious athletes in the peak of physical fitnees and I do not intend to mock the faces they pull while in pursuit of heroic Olympian dreams. Even if it does look like they've just shot their load.]

Btw, is mini-Justin making a bid for freedom there?!

Hmmm. Besides the expression, they both have one hand near an ear. And the other hand is cupped, as if it's suspicially hiding something small...like a Q-tip!!

Spot on, despite our joking around, I have to utmost respect for these athletes, and what they have put themselves through to get to this level.

I wonder if the lady-diver is wearing weights on her wrists to let her increase her angular momentum.
