Once upon a time, Augo the polar bear was afraid of water in his enclosure at Denmark's Aalborg Zoo - but not any more.
The six-month-old cub plucked up the courage to leap into the unknown - and once he jumped, there was no stopping him.
The champion-in-the-making has spent the last few weeks delighting onlookers at the zoo with his newly found, Olympian-standard diving skills.
Flying through the air, it's clear he's having the time of his polar bear life; with mum Malik proudly looking on.
Zoo spokeswoman Sussi Køber said, "Augo is almost six months old and he's full of energy - a little, big bear weighing almost 40 kilos."
Come see delightful photos of Augo as he embarks on his aquatic journey, below.
