Canadian diver Pamela Ware recorded a rare score of 0.0 at the Olympics on Sunday.
The 28-year-old was making her debut at the historic competition, taking part in the 3m springboard.
However, for a 3.5 difficulty dive she took a misstep on her approach and had to pull out of her planned attempt at the last moment.
As a result, Ware ended up effectively performing a pencil jump straight into the pool.
The failed dive was of course scored a 0.0 and meant that she exited the competition.
Ware reacted by telling Canadian broadcaster CBC: “I think that if I would have done the dive, I could have possibly hurt myself.”
She later added in an Instagram video: “I am going to say that I am very proud of myself. Something really difficult.
“What you guys see in the competition is just a tiny factor of what we actually do to get to where we are.
“I was so ready for this competition, and I made a mistake.
“It could have happened to anybody, but it happened to me at the wrong time.
“But I am proud because I have done everything possible to make it to where I am and I’m human, I’m allowed to make mistakes.
“I hope you guys are gonna get used to having me around because I’m not going anywhere, I’m not giving up. This competition does not define me and I will not let it defeat me.”
