I found the one thing I know for sure I could do in the Olympic games and that is score a zero on a failed feet first dive.  Canadian Olympic diver Pamela Ware pulled it off during the 3-meter springboard semifinal on Saturday.

As you would expect the zero knocked her out of contention and she did not move on.

From FOX News:

Ware jumped off the board and splashed into the pool feet first. The failed dive resulted in no points and she finished in 18th place with a score of 245.10. The top 12 divers moved into the medal round.

"What we do in the competition is just a tiny factor of what we actually do to get to where we are," Ware said in an Instagram video, according to Insider. "I was so ready for this competition, and I made a mistake. It could have happened to anybody, but it happened to me at the wrong time."

It's a healthy reminder that you can't win them all.  It's also a healthy reminder that, even though you would never qualify in the first place, you could definitely put up the same score as an Olympic athlete.
