I did enjoy that programme they had on with all the Celebs learning to dive then competing (can't remember the name) It was filmed in my local pool which was used for the Olympics. As I recall Eddie the Eagle won

I like watching diving on the Olympics. My dad was a great diver and both my sister and I were taught to swim and dive from a young age. I can still remember my first swan dive off a high board. It was scary and exhilarating. I was never very good at it, but my dad and sister could do jackknifes and rolls and such.

hi annie yeah, watched it a few times. i liked the diving and how some of celebs got to do things they never thought themselves capable of, but didn't really like the rest of the programme's format.

They were so graceful, both of them. I was always kind of a klutz by comparison. Otoh, neither of them could write sonnets and stuff.
