THE GERMAN diver Stephan Feck lost his footing on the board and landed with a splat. Judges awarded him zeros.
Feck had company, but it’s been a tough Olympics for Germany.
China’s Qin Kai, who was leading at the time, completely mis-timed one of his last dives, drawing a dismal score of 3.5. Britain also fell foul of the disastrous night, with Jack Laugher, ranked seventh in the world, suffering a “knee buckle” on his final dive as his legs gave way. The visibly nervous 17-year-old, who was the youngest competitor in the field, crashed into the pool with a perplexed expression and also ended with scores of zero. [Express.co.uk]
