Two fantastic videos today highlighting the classic diving styles in the year 1975. Back when they did not perform such high degree of difficulty dives with lots of flips and twists and diving was a lot simpler and poetic. In the early years, most divers had to perform all required dives in the straight or fully laid out position and the required twister was always the beautiful front dive straight with a 1/2 twist. Enjoy these two videos of diving 1970’s style.
Did you notice all of the first 5 dives in that beautiful straight position? So pretty.
An amazing reverse 1 1/2 tuck at the 30 second mark. Very elegant, smooth and pretty.
