Four people in Tarpon Springs, Florida won the cross dive event this past Epiphany. That's three more than usual. The event is still causing controversy in the Greek-American community of the area.

From the article:
Quote
The Rev. Stavros Akrotirianakis of St. John Greek Orthodox Church in Tampa was clearly displeased about what he witnessed....

In the future, Father Stavros said, he would like order restored. He thinks the participating boys should be carefully screened, so they have a greater sense of meaning and purpose in what they are doing. He would like the winner to become an ambassador for the church for the year, the way Miss America uses her crown to promote a platform. He wonders how many boys would apply to dive if it came with that obligation.
