Cool Video About Great Britain's Qualification in Men's Snycro


.
One of the interesting things with the internet and spread of easy connection is shared stories.  Tom Daley - British Diver (and engaged to US movie director Dustin Lance Black) - has won medals and is Britain's star of diving.  He and his partner just qualified for the Rio Olympics in syncro diving.
.
It's interesting because he goes through the story quickly, but gives me things I didn't know.  Like 12 make it to the final round and only 9 qualify for the Olympics (I did wonder why only 9 were in Beijing, were Eddie and I watched it).
.
Anyway, it is kind of interesting.

Interesting...and let the build up to "The Games" begin.

I am curious how on earth a British diver and a US film director meet. How did those paths cross? I blame/give credit to Kevin Bacon.
