Springboard Diver’s Brave Response To Epic Fail

On 10 june, videos of failed dives by Filipino diver John David Pahoyo during the SEA Games 3-metre Aquatics Diving Final spread like wild fire. The 17-year-old splashed into the pool unceremoniously and was left with a score of zero in that particular dive.

SGAG uploaded a clip of the dive and from then on the video took a life of its own. It was watched over 1 million times in less than a day.

“Why share our failed dives when you can share the dives that we did well?” he says.

Bravo, they are after all elite athletes who took on one of the scariest sports.

We give you a 10 for that.
