German diver Stephan Feck may not win a gold medal this year, but he can rest easy knowing that he delivered the absolute worst dive in Olympic history Tuesday night.
What started off as promising quickly turned into disaster as Feck failed to complete a rotation and landed in the water on his back during the preliminary round of the men’s 3m springboard competition.
Feck’s dive was an instant Internet hit — and at least he made international headlines. Here are some of the worst:
