Diving Twists

This time I will post photos of twists. I adore the how the female divers seem to overcome the feeling of dizziness that comes together with the twisting (which is actually rolling in the air). Usually in the twist position, one hand would be behind the head and the other would hold the chest. I guess great body control, practice and determination is what it takes to achieve their perfection.
