Olympics – 1984 Los Angeles – Diving – Mens Springboard Prelims – Dive 10 Round


Although this is another video that sounds like it was recorded under water…..the men’s springboard diving competition preliminaries 9th dive at the ’84 Olympics in Los Angeles…..provides a round of delightful dives to watch being performed….1st by KUW Abdulla Abuqrais with a 2 1/2 tuck…..followed by USA Greg Louganis….who does a reverse 3 1/2 pike position with a degree of 3.0…as he leads the competition by 62 pts….for this man by this point was lapping the field.  Louganis is followed by GBR Christopher Snode….doing the same dive as Louganis….which is followed by Li Hongping of China…..who doesn’t have his best dive…..as he is followed by Piero Italiani of Italy doing a back 2 1/2 somersault.  

The very last part of this video is an advertisement with comedian Jerry Lewis for the Muscular Dystrophy Association….as Jerry spent a lifetime raising money for MD research for “Jerry’s kids”…as Lewis was a truly great HUMAN being….cuz we dogs just love kids too!!!
