Olympics 2012: Alexandre Despatie Diving Back In After Near Career Ending Catastrophe

Alexandre Despatie is a world class diver, but he may be even better at making the dramatic comeback. The Canadian diver is a two-time Olympic silver medalist, a three-time world champion and a champion of multiple other swim competitions. The attribute that has allowed Despatie to really rise above is his constant overcoming of physical adversity. If I stub my toes, then I usually decide that is enough reason to retreat to my bed for the day, but Despatie has persevered through near career-ending injuries.
