London Zoo's penguins get an Olympic dive board

There was much excitement at London Zoo yesterday, as the attraction's penguins were presented with a new diving board inspired by the London Olympics, which is less four months away.

Wasting no time at all, the birds dutifully lined up to take their turn, showing off their athlectic prowess by effortlessly diving off the Olympic branded board.

The new board even managed to ruffle the feathers of a few other birds, who flew in to find out what all the fuss was about - taking advantage of the penguins' distraction to steal a couple of fish!
