The Filipino Men's Diving Team Is Really Bad At Diving
But they have a great sense of humour about it.

While the Olympics are meant to be a celebration of the world's greatest athletes, for the Filipino national diving team, they've instead shined a light on some of the country's most disastrous performances.
Recently, a video of Filipino divers John Elmerson Fabriga and John David Pahoyo at the 2015 SEA Games has gone viral again due to their less-than-graceful dives. Both scored zero for their performances—Fabriga landed on his back while Pahoyo landed on his feet—but good-naturedly embraced the whole thing with an incredible sense of humour.
Sharing a double high-five after their dives and laughing at how poorly it went, it should probably come as no surprise that neither of them will be competing in the Olympics this year.
