The Hilariously Contorted Faces of Divers in Mid-Air


Diving is one of the most popular Olympic sports among spectators, and arguably one of the most graceful. The faces of the divers as they perform their acrobatics? Not so graceful.

ShortList Magazine took Getty photographs of divers and then cropped out their distorted faces. G-forces have quite a negative effect on beauty…

The photographs remind us of Tadao Cern’s photos of faces being blasted by air.
