To err is human. But there are some errors that go to the brink of stupidity, bringing not just laughter but also ridicule. And if you are a top athlete and make a blunder out of you at such a high level as Olympics you are certainly going to attract the ire of millions of people who were expecting a gold and not a blunder that get you thrown out of the tournament.
Stephen Feck is a big name when it comes to diving not just in Germany but across Europe. He is known as the perfectionist in a country where perfection is given utmost importance. But what happened to him in London Olympic diving competition was beyond anybody’s imagination.
Twenty two year old renowned diver while trying a complex diving couldn’t control himself and fell in the water on his head. Though reports didn’t point to injuries inflicted on him during the mishap, he was unable to continue in the competition and withdrew.
Feck is the winner of the 2010 European Championships in Budapest in 2011. He is also the winner of silver medal in the same competition in synchronised diving, a very complex art of diving where several divers synchronise their diving. In 2009 he took part in the first world championships. In synchronized competition, he was fifth house thing.
Meanwhile he has come under severe criticism for his pathetic performance in Olympic by his fellow German athletes.
Four-time gold medallist and German swimming legend Roland Matthes severely castigated his fellow German athlete and called his act as “shameful and unworthy”. But notwithstanding its unworthiness, people are enjoying such a high level of unprofessionalism and such failure from a top athlete and that too in Olympics
