    Link: The Fantastic Somersault Penalty Kick - This Finnish 16-year-old pulls off an amazing penalty kick, but was it a diversionary tactic?

    I don`t know if it is considered a diversionary tactic seeing as how he did it after the kick. You rarely see that called. Probably because it is the lamest way ever of giving up a free goal.

    My thoughts exactly. It would be like saying that doing a dance in the end zone after a touchdown is a diversionary tactic. It was cool whether he got the goal or not.

    whoa its like the momentum of the kick caused his body to have some kind of mid-air spasm which turned into a somersault. hmm

    that was just showing off, how was it diversionary? now if he had somersaulted and then kicked, maybe. its no different than the people who flip for throw-ins, you can get nearly as much power with the proper technique

    Pretty frikkin cool.

    BTW, is anyone else having trouble w/ embedded youtube videos? It acts like it buffers when I try to start them even though it is fully loaded.`
    Also, it gives me the end screen before the video actually ended, I would be able to ignore it if it didn`t cut off the last 5-10 of what I`m watching.
    If anyone else has this problem, then I`m half-minded on telling YT.

    Now it`s doing it even when I`m on YouTube. It pauses the video when I press replay after the video ended, and I can`t start it unless I pan the time to another place then rewind back.
    It`s really getting annoying.
