Few things delight me as much as unexpected Australian success, and Matthew Mitcham’s success in the 10m diving tonight just about takes the cake. He denied the hosts, China, a clean sweep of the diving gold’s with a stunning final dive. The dive garnered four perfect ten scores.
We can’t win everything, but my goodness it’s nice to have an upset every now and then. Makes up for the oh-do-delightfully named and even-more-so-delightfully-genetically-blessed Eamon Sullivan’s rather disappointing performance.
