He Chong and Dimitri Diving Duel

A small video I found of probably one of the best Chinese springboard divers, Mr. He Chong and my absolute favorite diver of all time Mr. Dimitri Sautin.  It appears they were both competing at the same meet in the year 2007 when He Chong was on his rise and sadly Dimitri was on the slow decline.  Regardless of the age, this is some exceptional diving and I would have loved to attend this meet and watch this contest go down.  I love everything about Dimitri’s diving, his hurdle, his mechanics, his entries and even his nonchalant, mr. cool attitude.  I wish more kids now a days would model themselves after one of these two diving styles, both are extraordinary.  My curious question is: who won this meet?  Enjoy this fine piece of diving history and have a fun, safe and active weekend everyone.
