For the sadistically inclined one of the funniest moments in 99 years of modern Olympiad had to be when Greg Luganis belted his head off one of the boards at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. Of course Luganis had the last laugh when a shiny medal was placed over his bleeding head, but it was still very funny.

The bronzed American would look like a fish out of water if he came to

Scotland where diving is very much a f minority sport. Once upon a time there

were plenty of outdoor pools in

Scotland where hardy chaps would

risk their wedding tackle for the sake of a one and half turn with pike. Sadly that’s all in the past and Scotland had no divers at the 1994 Commonwealth

Games. There are now only three j diving clubs in Scotland, with

Edinburgh boasting the largest membership of just 30, and Strathclyde not even having a single club. Perhaps, claims Malcolm Taylor the East District diving convener, the


(‘R:\l(} ll.v\l.l\'li'l’l'

Always find a deep pool

sport isn’t as easy as it seems.

‘lt’s not a sport like football where you have the ball and know what to do with it. In diving there’s quite a steep learning curve before you can start to

approach it with confidence. Really

only people who have a background in trampolining and gymnastics understand the amount of work that goes into it.’

‘lt’s all about strength, balance and

5 timing,’ continues Taylor. ‘The most

important factors are natural ability

and determination. Those who have

natural ability progress fastest, but

L after that determination is the key.

Diving isn’t a dangerous sport but courage is vital because the more you

attack the dive the less likely it is that

you will hurt yourself. The trick is not to hesitate but to just go for it.’ (Philip
