Dick Kimball, ’59, MA ’60, is truly a Michigan Man. He’s been doing backflips at the Big House and in the diving well for more than 50 years and counting. His name is synonymous with Michigan diving and he still puts on his old cheerleading sweater each homecoming. This video, presented by the Alumni Association’s Michigan Alumnus magazine, offers up some amazing then-and-now footage of Kimball in action. He also reveals his secret to staying young.
