Olympics – 1984 Los Angeles – Diving – Mens Platform Finals – 6th Dive Round

DOG ASIDE:

USA Greg Louganis ran away with both gold medals in the men’s 3 m springboard and the men’s 10 m platform diving competitions at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics….but there was a serious “dive-for-dive” contest going on for the silver medal in platform diving…..as USA Bruce Kimball and CHN Li Hongzheng were attacking each dive in each round of the 10 dives in the finals….it was fierce competition….as Bruce Kimball lived up to his moniker as “The Comeback Kid” (told the story of Bruce in round 7 dives)….overtaking Li on the final dive of the competition to win the silver….and that is where the “real fight” was in diving at these L A Olympics.
