World Swimming Pool 'Dive Bombing' Champion Is Crowned

Belly flopper from hell...

The world dive bombing champion has been crowned in a swimming pool in the western German town of Heilbronn.

The winner was Simon Gfeller from Muensingen, Switzerland.

His dive of four turns followed by a spectacular landing on his face impressed the judges and the crowd alike. He got extra points for not crying from the pain.

Dive bombing is the ability to make as much noise and splash when you hit the water as possible. Sometimes known as a 'belly flop', it hurts like hell.

"Dive-bombing is an extreme sport," said organizer Oliver Schill, 36.

Competitors had three attempts from the 10-metre board, including one classic backwards dive and two 'freestyle' attempts.
