The RIP Entry

I may be a little biased, but probably my favorite sound in all of sports is the rip entry in diving.  The rip entry happens when a diver is stretched and fully locked out hitting the water at or near vertical followed by that amazing splashless entry.  They call it a rip entry because when done right, it sounds like someone is ripping paper as the diver passes through the water.  The sound of a flat hand hitting the water at 35 miles per hour.  Here is a video of some great diving with some different variations of the rip entry.  Turn up the volume on your computer and enjoy the amazing sounds.
