A Bigger Scream

diving competition variation

Competitors are required to deliver an appropriate scream when executing their dive of choice. This attracts marks for volume, sustain, and originality, which are added to the total for the actual dive.

       That was spectacular! Roger Pembington-Smythe, with a back double somersault tuck, and an awesome "Jolly Ho", that should take him right up into the medals. And now, Chang Li Won, with a reverse one and a half somersaults with three and a half twists, in the free position, attempting the "Texan Whoop". [+]

       Here comes Janet Leigh.. with a double half pike and a fantasticly blood curdling "Aaaargh!".

       "And as he executes the backwards flip, he tears off the obligatory blindfold to see the piranhas waiting in the water below, andOWWWW MY EARDRUMS..... "

       "Johnson is up on the high dive for a reverse pike with a conventional 'Geronimo!' Ooooh a bellyflop!"
"That'll cost her big time in the technical dive section, but the painful wail afterwards was a perfect 10!"

       Now THAT'S a funny idea.   

       It reminds me of a scene in this movie "Pumping Iron" that tells about Arnold Swartznegger's early career as a body builder. He told a competitor to strike a pose and then yell real loud. Just like: "AAAARRRRGG!" The guy did, he looked insane and lost to Arnold. Arnold's attitude was: Why would I give a competitor good advice?

       Would the scream be louder if the "water" was just an animated hologram that got turned off just after the competitor had jumped........ ?

       I like the idea, one body flop, grunt.

       Johnny Weissmuller would be the ideal judge, shirley.
