Flop olympic now an internet sensation

Stephan Feck probably didn't plan on finishing last in the men's 3-meter springboard diving preliminaries, but he most certainly did not plan on his dive becoming an Internet viral sensation, earning the title of "Worst Olympic Dive."

Feck's embarrassing performance at the Aquatics Centre will likely go down as one of the worst flops of the 2012 London Olympics.

The German competitor's dive seemed like it had solid momentum when Feck first catapulted off the springboard. However, the athlete's hand soon slipped from his thigh, causing him to lose his tuck and land smack on his back in a devastating, backward bellyflop.

Feck failed to qualify, finishing dead last with a score of 133.80. This score put him 167.65 points behind the second-to-last diver. The dive, a forward 3 1/2 somersault and his second of the round, garnered nothing but zeroes from the judges.

"So what the Feck happened?" SB Nation's Ryan Hudson asked. "Quite simply, he performed one of the worst dives ever in Olympic competition... but made himself forever Internet famous."

Headlines did not spare the athlete, either.
