Diving – 1979 – Special – World Belly Flop + Cannonball Championship – With Jim Lampley

One of the real characters of the World Bellyfop Championships Competition was a contestant named Butts Giraud….who was a Canadian entrepreneur, musician, author and a former professional football player and a professional wrestler in North America and England….whereas, we have video proof that Giraud’s greatest talent were displayed when he won the world belly-flop and cannonball championships in 1975, 1976, 1978 and 1980….and we at ImaSportsphile are “tickled pink” that we have this nugget of gold in our treasure chest of memories.  Albeit this world championship took place every year throughout most of the 1970’s and 1980’s….and were indeed serious competition….well, as serious as really funny stuff can get….cuz this stuff is hilarious….we love these guys doing world class cannonballs off the 3m spring board.
