Olympic Diver - Li Feng Yang

Olympic diver Li Feng Yang captured in mid dive.

Shooting with Li Feng Yang was truly inspiring, the man knows how to wear a speedo! Not just that but his ability on the diving board boggled the mind. Spins, turns, twists all at the same time? I felt motion sickness rising as he climbed the ladder for the tenth time to perform the same flawless act of agility.
Did I try the board myself after Li had left? Why yes I did. Being the fool hardy thrill seeker I am I took a dive off the platform. It was a perfect 10 right until I started my run up. Can you get a minus score in diving?
Many thanks to  Wellington High Performance Aquatics for organising the location, Li for being himself, and my assistants Andy and Pauline for staying dry.
