19 Pictures That Prove That Diving Is The Funniest Sport In The Olympics

by Rachel

I'm not sure if anyone else felt this way, but I got a lot more joy than I expected from the Olympics this year. Before they started, I thought that they should have just cancelled them- skipped 2020 and moved them to 2024, which will hopefully be a safer time- but I am very glad they didn't.

Sure, it was weird watching the athletes compete with masks, and without crowds. But it really gave a sense of unity for the world--and a hope that we will all get through this.

Social media has been abuzz with Olympics content, but did you catch these divers?

1. The faces they make whilst diving are simply hilarious!

Easy for us to judge when most of us probably dive like this! But, hey, it's hilarious, right?
