scenario.
KIMBALL has been a two-time
state diving champion and four-time
All-America and has enjoyed a great
deal of success in nationals and world
championships.
But Kimball's long history of accom-
plishments will have only a slight effect
on his Olympic chances come July.
"You have to do it on that day, not on
past performance. It all comes down to
one trial," said Kimball.
ALTHOUGH he is believed to be
one of the leading contenders to make
the USA's Olympic diviing team, Kim-
ball himself isn't so sure.
"Although past performance helps a
little bit, there will be many chances for
10 other divers to make it who are just
as good," Kimball said. "You have to

prove that you're the best on that par-
ticular day."
Of course, the magnitude of the
Olympics might make one think that
the trials should determine the absolute
best. Perhaps, but Kimball is not con-
cerned with the system because he
can't fight it.
"IT DOESN'T bother me because
that's the way it is," Kimball said.
"You have to adapt to the situation on
that particular day and do your best."
Kimball's coach and father, Dick
Kimball, the 1980 and 1984 Olympic
coach, can confirm'his son's assertions.
Said the elder Kimball, "The Olym-
pic trials are a one-shot deal, you have to
have a good day. It is easy to say that
Bruce will be (in the Olympics), but
much harder for him to do it."
ALTHOUGH the Olympic trials will
produce two superb divers, Bruce Kim-
ball feels that he will be competing for
the second spot.
Enter Greg Louganis, perhaps
America's finest diver at the moment.
Louganis has a certain edge right

now over Kimball because of his morel
complex dives. When computing
scores, judges multiply points by
degree of difficulty. And Kimball knows
that, currently, his own dives make it
difficult to beat Louganis.
"I HAVE a tough time with Louganis
because of degree of difficulty," Kim-
ball said. "Before the trials, I'll have to
learn new dives, and get stronger."
Still, in Kimball's mind, Louganis is
as close as one gets to a shoe-in for the
Olympics. So Michigan's diving star
will be shooting for the number two
spot.
"When he's on, it's hard to beat him,"
Kimball said, "so I'm going in
realistically trying for second."
NONETHELESS, that critical day
next summer will be an atypical ex-
perience for all USA qualifiers, in-
cluding Kimball.
Said Dick Kimball, "The USA has a
unique situation, there are so many
good divers and so much depth, you
might miss out making the team on that
day. Any good diver in another country
would make it."
Bruce Kimball's diving career will
not come to a screeching halt if he fails
to make the Olympic team, but that
doesn't make the trails any less impor-
tant.
After all, said Kimball, "The
Olympics are the ultimate amateur
competition."

Gridde Picks

Engineering College Prof. Thomas
Senior's laboratory was blockaded last
week for a far more serious reason than
originally thought. It seems Senior was
conducting military research by
simulating all twenty Griddes games in
his radioactive pigskin lab and passing
the results to top military officials to be
turned in as picks.
This infuriated the PSN (Pizza Sup-
per Network), whose members
blockaded the gridiron lab. Bum
Phillip's Nuclear Saints (so called
because they play their home games in
a radioactive dome) also occupied the
lab this week. One of the Saints said he
was trying the create the Minnesota
Gophers out of Fritos and refried bean
dip. "I'm trying to create atrocity. If
we have a nuclear war and all our foot-
ball players die, the Gophers will
finally be a football power."
Turn in your picks at Pizza Bob's piz-
za lab on S. State or Church or at the

Daily research offices before midnight
Friday.
