If you’re a fan of shark film The Meg because of the wet hot Jason Statham, you’ll love what we’re about to show you.
Before Statham became a household name and took on a prehistoric shark, he was a professional diver. That’s right, Statham spent twelve years on the British National Swimming team and even competed in the 1990 Commonwealth Games.
Once in an interview to IGN, Statham said:
"It was a great experience, you know, to travel the world and compete at a certain level. It teaches you discipline, focus, and certainly keeps you out of trouble."
But as amazing, hilarious, and dashing as Jason Statham is today, what was he like when he was a professional athlete? Well, you don’t have to wonder about that anymore, because we’ve got a video of it to share with you all.
Go ahead and check out an impressive show of athleticism from Statham by clicking on the YouTube video down below. You won’t be sorry.
