Hausding of Germany at the Diving World Cup

The FINA Diving World Cup completed last week, and this year's event featured the star-studded cast we know and love.  And, even though China did sweep the gold medals ... there were plenty of others to go around.
... plus the great veteran, Patrick Hausding, who took silver medals in both of the synchro events.  I guess he really does play well with others. (!)
