Terrifying Diving Events During Beijing Olympics

*Terrifying Diving Events During Beijing Olympics*

Guo Jingjing is one of the female athletics in
Beijing Olympics and she also became the most successful diver
in Olympic history Sunday by winning the women's springboard event.

It was the second goal medal of these Games and the sixth
of her career. She had been tied with China's Fu Minxia
and American Greg Louganis for the most diving medals all time.

jumping or falling into water from a platform or springboard
of a certain height. Successful competitors possess many of
the same characteristics as gymnasts and dancers,
