    Not at all. And particularly when they do those inward somersaults and get really close to the platform.

    I hope our Aussie guy can improve his position. Go Matthew!
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    Heck no - sometimes they appear to be so close - especially when they show it from above

    Phew Tom's qualified. Still needs a LOT more tonight for the final. I cannot imagine how horrible this all must be for him. 4 years of hype - who can live up to that?

    Yikes I don't think Matty Mitcham is going to make the final . He looks as though he's about to cry

    Maybe he had too much Vegemite this morning?
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    In more ways than one. Ah well, he'll always have Beijing.

    The Canadian Riley McCormick nailed his last dive for 9s to squeak into the finals. The calibre was so high in this event, much stronger than the women's. The final is going to be so exciting!!

    He is out - what a shock That shows you how consistent you need to be - it is a tough competition.

    Tom Daley qualifies in 4th - right behind the 2 Chinese and a Yank!!

    The standard was unbelievable - All the qualified divers went clean on their 6 dives. There were barely any mistakes at all.

    So bummed.

    (((((Matt)))))

    Wowzers, Gelperin out, too?

    Boudia certainly got his act together. Good for McCrory, too!

    ETA: I guess I'm a bad American, but I'd rather Mitcham in the final over Boudia.

    I guess I'm a bad Canadian then, too, because when the Canadian commentators were going crazy over McCormick getting in, I was thinking that I'd rather it be Mitcham. With the injury that Mitcham had, I'm guessing he wouldn't have been in contention for a medal anyway, but it would have been nice to see him in the final.

    Wow, except for the Chinese, those semi standings are totally changed from prelims!

    Mitcham doesn't make finals?

    Another bad Canadian here...happy for McCormick, but I, too, would rather have seen Mitcham advance. That was so sad to see him looking so dejected.
