This Phenomenally Bad Diving Performance Has Become A Hit On YouTube

You know when you’re sat watching an Olympic event and you think to yourself ‘I wonder if I could do that?’ Or perhaps you watch a particularly bad performance and scoff aloud, “Pah! I could do better than that!” Well today we answer the age old question of how well it would go if you or I actually did try our hand at a professional sport. The results? Not good. You see, the Filipino Diving team has been getting a lot of attention lately – despite (or really, because) they didn’t actually qualify for the Rio Olympic Games. The reason they didn’t qualify had a little something to do with them being quite bad at diving. In fact, their performance in this diving comptition from 2015 was so bad that both divers actually managed to score 0 points from the judges – yikes. Let’s dive in and take a look:


Not so great, eh? I haven’t seen that much failure since the last time the England Football team attempted to do anything at all. But hey! That doesn’t mean they didn’t try their very best – and in the end, isn’t that what sports are all about? No. Sports are about WINNING. Nah I’m just kidding, sports are about trying your best. So I, for one, take off my very expensive hat to the Filipino diving team. They certainly gave it their all.
