A video was published on YouTube yesterday by user Jordan Reay showing archived footage (which appears to be taken from the BBC) of the 1990 Commonwealth Games with action-star Jason Statham competing in several diving events. The video has already received over 100k views.
Skip to 1:50 for a real belly flop that will make you wince…
@thecgf oh that last dive had to hurt! #allpainnogain

The star of the Transporter and the Expendables series and many other action movies had a woeful performance though and only managed to finish eighth in the 1m springboard, 11th in the 3m springboard and 10th in the 10m platform events.
Thankfully Jason did quit his day job though and went on to pursue an acting career.
