Statham: 'Olympic Diving Was Just A Silly Hobby'
The Transporter star once represented the U.K. Olympic team on the high board - but he insists he was never serious enough about the sport to become a winner.
Statham explains, "I did it for a little while; it was a silly hobby.
"I was on holiday with the parents years and years ago and I saw some guy do a high dive and I said, 'You know what, let me have a go at that.' It was just this stupid idea that I'd be able to do.
"I was on the British team for, like, 10 years and I ran around the world competing."
The Expendables star reveals he no longer makes a big splash diving, but he still loves the water.
He adds, "I go under the water now, instead of above it... I like scuba diving. It's great, down there with the fishes."
