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.┬áLouganis 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.
