    Ouch!

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050722/..._diver_injured



    MONTREAL - American Chelsea Davis hit her face on the diving board during the 3-meter springboard preliminaries Friday at the World Swimming Championships.

    Davis was attempting an inward 2 1/2 somersault in the tuck position when her face struck the board. Blood poured out of her nose and stunned spectators covered their faces.

    Helpers jumped into the pool and pulled her out. She was put on a stretcher and taken for treatment nearby.

    "She's fine," U.S. diving team leader Bob Rydze said. "She's moving all her limbs. She just needs a few stitches."

    Davis, a 17-year-old diver who trains in Columbus, Ohio, was competing in her first senior-level world championships.

    The fourth round of competition resumed after a brief delay.

    All right, we'll call it a draw.
    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.
