New Favorite Diver

Hello everyone, I would like to introduce to you my new favorite diver from Russia Mr. llya Zakharov.  Mr. Zakharov is the new 2012 gold medalist on the 3 meter springboard and is responsible for ending team China’s sweep of the gold.  He is a very promising young and upcoming diver with great power, a great jump and a huge degree of difficulty.  He is the only diver in the Olympics to compete a back 3 1/2 tuck and he is the only one I have seen doing that dive.  That, along with his amazing front 4 1/2 tuck and his triple twisting front  2 1/2 puts him one step ahead of everyone else.  I really enjoy watching him dive and look forward to seeing his continued dominance in the sport of diving.  Congratulations Ilya!
