Feck'd It! German Diver Stephan Feck Completes Worst Dive Ever

The preliminary round in men's 3m springboard diving was held on Monday, with Russia's Ilya Zakharov scoring the highest total, a 507.65. China's Chong He was second, and now leads the field into Tuesday's finals following the morning's semifinals. Failing to qualify was Germany's Stephan Feck, who finished dead-last and managed a total of just 133.80, a full 167.65 points behind the next-best (worst?) diver.

So what the Feck happened? Quite simply, he performed one of the worst dives ever in Olympic competition ...

... but made himself forever Internet famous.

Duff'd it! Feck'd it!

It was Feck's second dive of the round, and it's actually kind of amazing to see the judge's scoring, because it's not often you see so many zeros.

Yikes. To his credit, he rebounded with a successful third and final dive, scoring a 66.30.

Perhaps the worst part for Feck? The headline possibilites. "Oh, Feck: German diver bombs - and gets nothing but a slap on the back for his efforts" - Sydney Morning Herald. Hopefully Feck can appreciate the fact that the Sydney Morning Herald's url begins with "smh" as much as I do.
