Stephan Feck from Germany had an Olympic tumble during the preliminary round of mens 3m springboard diving.
He finished last at No.29 and was eliminated from the competition. This should be enough for Feck to deal with--coming in dead last at the biggest event of his career--but with the advent of social media, the man has gained internet notoriety for having what some call, pretty much "the worst dive ever."
During his second attempt at the Aquatics Centre he landed flat on his back after losing grip on his leg during a rotation. The major Olympic mistake has now gone viral.
The 22-year-old was attempting a forward, three-and-a-half somersault pike when his foot reportedly slipped off the board which caused him to lose control of his leg. When he was in mid air he made too many rotations which caused him to fall on his back.
Each judge gave the guy a whopping score of zero. The 22-year-old completed one more dive where he scored 2.5 out of 10. He then withdrew from the competition, obviously distressed.
Feck's gaffe, though the most notable of the night, was not the only one. Britain's Jack Laugher's knee buckled during his final dive and his legs gave way which caused him to crash down in the pool. This also ended in a scoreboard full of zeros.
Laugher is the youngest diver at 17-years-old and ranked seventh in the world. According to The Daily Mail British dive coach Adrian Hinchliffe saidl "When people are going out there and giving everything there will be mistakes."
Patrick Hausding, also from Germany, said to The Daily Mail about Feck's performance, "For me it was a big shock, I felt for him, he is a good friend. In his first Olympics it is something he won't want to remember."
