From the article: U.S. Olympic Team Divers
I've put a target on my back and offered up my thoughts on the U.S. Olympic Diving Team, so let's hear from you. How will they finish, what are their chances, or just wish them good luck!
They are a great team
- I do not like one little bit the skimpy bikini's being worn by the volleyballers, the divers, swimmers. Who wants to see the butt cracks? I don't! C'mon, specially the US members, put a little more material in the suits and not expose so much. I'd think they would have a little more modesty than to agree to wear them. Yuk. Whoever ordered them should get a good talking to, and not be allowed in that position next time.

Team looks good, but limited
- GOOD LUCK to the team!!! The members selected at the Trials deserve to be the representative for the USA. Looking back on the results of past Olympics the USA have been unsuccessful in recent Olympics. I'm afraid this Olympics is going to turn out the same. We need to change the way our judges at each dive meet determine their scores to match more closely the International Judging. Are the best selected? Yes, according to USA judging standards and not according to International Standards. Our International success speaks for itself. Our divers have grown up being use to USA judging standards and are blown away internationally. We should be judging more than just the splash. The complete dive is judged internationally. When the USA was sending competitive divers to the Olympics our judging standards scored the whole dive. Our divers are behind the scoring curve before they begin. The 9's & 10's come much too easy for the favorites at each meet which gives them unfair advantages.
- I wish them well, but who knows what to expect! We haven't done too well lately but this seems like a nice group of kids. Good Luck!!!
