Fourth-Place Medal

All right, this is pretty awesome. The FINA World Championships have introduced a high dive competition, and folks slinging themselves off 27-meter high platforms is amazing all on its own. Add in a dude in a Superman cape, and you've got ... well, it may not be art, but it'll do.

That's Michal Navratil, who would end up placing fourth in the event. This wasn't part of the competition, but rather an exhibition to close off the inaugural event, which landed right in Barcelona's harbor. The fact that he didn't collapse into a fetal position up there on the platform makes him all right with us.
