Many of you will already know that worldwide film star Jason Statham was a member of the British Diving Team back in the early to mid- 90's. In fact, such was his skill in the sport that he managed to pull off an impressive 12th place in the 1992 World Championships! So naturally, being the action hero he is, Statham decided to take a leap from the top of a yacht whilst holidaying with Orlando Bloom and their partners back in the summer of 2010. You might also have seen that he has popped up in the news recently thanks to old footage of him competing in the 1990 commonwealth games for England. He came 8th in this competition, but found major success in later life as the action star we all know today!
