German Diver Stephan Feck’s Epic Fail Olympic Backflop

You’re on the biggest stage in the world for diving – the 2010 Summer Olympics and you want to show your best, but then you lose a grip on your legs during a flip and it all goes horribly wrong. Sounds like a Olympian nightmare, but it really happened to German diver Stepan Feck. You can see it below.

The judges awarded it “epic fail,” giving 0’s across the board.

    “but then you lose a grip on your legs”

    Is that even possible?

    • Actually yes. Your spinning at a very fast pace and when your legs are wet, its very hard to keep a hold of them.

    My first thought was to Vinko Bogataj, Jim McKay and the words, “…the agony of defeat.” Some things have a life of their own. This moment in Stepan’s life could follow a similar arc.

    Feck it.

      In my mind I can already hear diving coaches using, “Don’t Feck it” as a cautionary warning to their athletes. Good one, Chico.

    That is how I would perform a dive. ww
