Olympic Dreams

Don’t You Hate It? • 19

Don’t you hate it when you spend years at the diving pool training to make the U.S. Olympic Diving Team,

and in the very first event, you do a reverse one and a half somersault with three and a half twists in the free position,

and you suddenly remember you didn’t make the diving team,

and it’s winter,

and you’re in the ski jump competition,

and the ground is coming at you really fast.
