represents an emotional moment rarely
caught underwater. This particular diver
was expected to win the entire event. The
diver knew as soon as he hit the water his
form was flawed and that he might have

with a sense of defeat written in his body
language This was the image I chose from
the series. I have felt this emotion and

do. My chance to capture it underwater
was rare but beautiful. It is a moment no
competitive athlete wants to relive but
something important that many of us can
relate to. It is raw and human and real.
