Thanks for the comments, guys!
I think it could have been somewhat better if you had the Olympic tune
I would have done, however there's a big copyright issue on that.

It would have been nice to have an aerial angle though
Good idea. Pity I didn't think of that at the time, although I don't think it made much difference.

Now this I disagree with. In actual fact, one of the main reasons I entered is because shortly after the animation challenge was announced, I went swimming, and whilst I was in the pool tried out a few cannonballs, in preparation for my entry. One of the thing I found was that diving off gives a small splash, whilst cannonballs give bigger ones, because your weight is compact. So actually I do think the splash worked.
although the lighting was consistant for most of the time, there were a couple of flickers
Oh, really? Could you show me where?
