Commonwealth Games: Jason Statham diving at the 1990 Games
Now a Hollywood actor, the star of The Transporter franchise used to be more interested in twists and pikes
Now known for his hardman performances in Hollywood, Jason Statham's steely gaze used to be more commonly found hovering above a swimming pool on the edge of a diving board.
Video footage of the The Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels actor has resurfaced showing him competing for England at the 1990 Commonwealth Games.
Whilst he tends to end up on the winning side by the end of the action movies he appears in, Statham's time as a diver was more modest. Competing across three disciplines in Auckland (pictured above), the boyfriend of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley finished eighth in the 1m springboard, 11th in the 3m springboard and 10th in the 10m platform.
The star of the Transporter and Expendables series' was a member of Britain's National Diving Squad for twelve years.

England will be hoping for more success when the latest Commonwealth Games get under way in Glasgow this week. Tom Daley is the stand-out name taking part and is expected to retain the title he won four years ago in Delhi.
