This Olympic Diver's Belly Flop Is One For The Ages

The dive landed him in last place.

Ahmad Amsyar Azman was in 12th place in the preliminary round of the 3-meter springboard, Yahoo reported. He would have advanced...but then this happened on his final dive.

Malaysian diver Ahmad Amsyar Azman had a tough night during the 3m springboard preliminary.


Azman told the New Straits Times he was very disappointed in his performance.

“I knew then that it was over as there was no way for me to make the semi-final,” he said. “I made a mistake when jumping and couldn’t control my dive after that.”

Congratulations, anyway, Ahmad! You'll get 'em next time.
