EPIC FAIL ! Russian Diver scores 0.0
 
A Russian Diver at the Olympics in Rio scored a 0.0...an ACTUAL ZERO !
It was a HILARIOUS EPIC FAIL !

He VEERED WILDLY LEFT on takeoff from the board and VIOLENTLY SMACKED the water with at least 3/4 of his entire body upon water entry.
I honestly think he may have been DRUNK !

This guy is supposedly a "World Champion"
It was a TOTAL RIOT leaving me laughing uncontrollably.
MUCH better than any POWR-SHANKK by a Golfer into a pond or a Bowler throwing a Gutter-Bawl.
ALMOST as good as a gymnast directly smashing into a pUmmel-horse right off the spring-board ramp.
WORSTTT DIVE EVERRRRRR !!!!!!

She was lucky that's all that happened to her. She was going for max height on the spring step and almost missed the board, catching it at the very corner. She may have even had a toe or three hanging off. To be honest, with the board throwing her out like that, she did a pretty dang good job of trying to hang on and complete dive. Shooting off that way cost her a couple feet of height, which is about how much she came up short on entry. The entry was about a "can-opener" angle. I was expecting belly-flop when I read the post.

Oh... A he? That means there were two! I saw the Russian girl. I'll hit Youtube and look at his.

Another epic fail. Walsh-Jennings/Ross just lost to the Brazillian chicks.

None of those were as funny as the Japanese pole vaulter though.....

Walsh-Jennings had a horrible game. The only thing that puzzled me was why the Brazilians ever served to Ross after the first 4 or 5 volleys. They would have annihilated the US had they served consistently to W-J after seeing she couldn't make a simple pass in the first 4 or 5 volleys of the first set. It took them too long to realize W-J was out of it...well, not too long cause they still won, but they could have absolutely dominated had they done it. Ross used multiple shots and was accurate. If not for her, they would have lost without hitting double digits in points. W-J cranked and fired every time she was set except for two touch shots. The Brazilians were too good at blocking her and she was too predictable in addition to not being able to hit the ball where she wanted. The Brazilians also mixed their spikes and touch shots throughout, basically castrating W-J's blocking prowess.

I was extremely disappointed by the performance of Walsh-Jennings/Ross last night.
W-J did seen REALLY out of it.
They were SUPPOSED TO WIN GOLD, period...
Although they got beat by the Brazilians, there is NO WAY they should have been ranked below either of those teams as a #3 seed. that was purely politics ranking the 'home girls' higher.
Honestly, this was the WORST performance I have EVER seen by Kerri Walsh-Jennings, and I actually follow Beach Volleyball and watch it when it is on.
Many years ago (in my mid 20's to early/mid 30's) is used to play competitive beach volleyball in several summer leagues. I have a cousin that played semi-pro. He can jump-serve similar to the stuff shown on TV.
I played both 4-person and 2-person beach leagues. One night I had to recruit my semi-pro cousin for our 4-man team as we were one person short. The other team just sat down in the sand after about 5 serves from my cousin....lol.

I agree, I only saw the first set but when she was shanking all those passes you could see that something was wrong.

They're also human beings.

It's the indoor men jump-serves that really blow me away.
