Diving isn’t just a sport for UNM’s Rachel Coleman. To her, it’s a chance to merge athletic endeavor with artistic expression to create perfection.

I love to perform. I’m generally a really shy person, but I like people to watch me. So I like to give them something to watch. So for me, my goal is to try to make (diving) look as smooth and as effortless as possible. Because I think that’s where the beauty comes, from doing something that looks impossible, and making it look easy at the same time.
