Yu Fen, one of the heroes behind China's long-time success in diving, suggests the current ailing national team might be headed the wrong way in trying to recapture past glory.

Coming off a four-month isolated training camp, the Chinese divers still didn't show decisive improvement.

ALBUQUERQUE - The paperwork bogeyman that had a busy weekend at the New Mexico state swimming and diving meet struck the Los Alamos Hilltopper diving contingent. Prior to Friday's preliminary competition, Los Alamos found out that its top female diver, Marilelle Remillard, had been disqualified because of a paperwork error.
