Hopefully Serguei Gonchar will pay more attention today riding his bike than he did Thursday evening walking around. Perhaps he was enthralled by the beautiful mountain landscape around Morzine or the landscaping in the garden of the hotel "Le Beau-Regard", or maybe he was concentrating on the telephone call he was having on his cell phone. Whatever the reason, he casually walked backwards…right in to the swimming pool.
Fortunately it was covered, so he didn't go all the way down. And there's no word as to whether he was finished his phone conversation with "good-bye" or "blub blub blub..."
