It's a bird...It's a plane...It's Superman! (no, it really is)

I'd say he's living out a childhood superhero dream...

Perhaps I should find a way to live out my childhood superhero dream...

From The Prague Daily Monitor:
Look up in a sky. It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s … a guy in a Speedo wearing a cape and jumping off a 27-meter high platform by posing like Superman!

Czech diver Michal Navratil closed the inaugural high dive event at the FINA World Championships in Barcelona by performing his patented Superman dive from the vertigo-inducing platform used the in extreme diving event. He had the cape, the music and, of course, the pose.

The 28-year-old Navratil finished fourth in the competition, which is of little consequence when you can leap tall buildings in a single bound.
