Olympics – 1984 Los Angeles – Diving – Mens 3m Springboard Finals – Dive 1 Round


ABC’s Jack Whitaker and Cynthia Potter bring the viewer the 1st dive round of the finals competition of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics men’s 3 m springboard diving….an event that featured the following twelve finalists…..FIN Juha Ovaskainen, FRG Dieter Doerr, MEX Jorge Mondragon, AUS Steve Foley, FRG Albin Killat, MEX Carlos Giron, ITA Piero Italiani, GBR Christopher Snode, CHN Tan Liangde, CHN Li Hongping, USA Ron Merriott and last but certainly not least….USA Greg Louganis…..as the competition took place as the Olympic Swim Center on the campus of the University of Southern California (USC).

Bone Daddy got to see this diving finals competition live at the Olympics….as I have often heard him talk about how dominating an athlete that Greg Louganis was in this competition….saying, “I have never seen an athlete on the biggest stage in the world more dominant over the field of competitors more than Greg Louganis was in this competition”….and Bone Daddy freely admits he does not know a great deal about the finer points of diving….but just by the eye test…..Louganis was by far the best.
