This video starts out with the one and only….Greg Louganis….with his 2nd of 11 rounds of dives in the 1984 Los Angles Olympics Men’s 3 m Springboard Diving competition….as ABC’s color commentator says of the dive that “Louganis just seems like he is suspended in air”….now, I know I am a dog….but a springboard diver is suspended in air?…just doesn’t sound possible….but you know what….when you watch Louganis make this dive….he does sorta seems suspended in air. Louganis is followed by USA Ron Merriott does a back 1 1/2….in 5th place at this point in the competition….but the eventual bronze medal winner.

ABC switches to Donna de Varona who interviews USA Alonzo Babers…..the recent track men’s 400 m dash gold medal winner and highlights of his race…..and ends with Marty Liquori and Al Michaels at the L A Coliseum talking about Sydney Maree scratching from the 1500 meters.
