Australian diver scores all zeros on worst competition dive ever (VIDEO)

Australian diver Maddison Keeney belly-flopped herself out of the World Aquatics Championships in Russia with a less than stellar dive in the final round.

The young woman's nerves appeared to have got the better of her and following the disastrous dive she slipped from fourth place to twelfth — scoring zeros across the board.

The dive carried a high degree of difficulty at 3.2 and, if she had nailed it, the 19-year-old may have landed herself on the medal stand. 

But she balked and all but fell off the platform, failing to register a score — dropping her to last place in the world-class field.

Footage from the event shows the Keeney bouncing on the platform before appearing to lose her balance.

It's still a pretty good dive at any pool or pond I've been to. And she has company. It was only last month that these two Filipino divers made a splash the wrong way and are now Internet stars.
