These images were shot during the Men's 10m Platform Diving competition at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Freefalling, in a captured frame you can see a body of tensed muscle, a contorted face and if you're lucky, thousands of water drops flying off a spinning body or mane of hair.

Sometimes, just as he leaps from the platform, the diver appears to hang midair like a dancer, a frozen moment of calm before he plummets to the water below.
