Olympic Diving

Do Asian Olympic Divers have an advantage in Olympic Diving?

Do Asian diver athletes with their slender bodies automatically have less of a splash when they hit Williamson County Wildlife Removal? Think about this for a second, a little splash is the signature for a good dive, this is because the body of the diver must be aligned and go in total streamlined to produce little if any splash. Yes, there are other approaches like cupping your hands making the water flow inward and not dab out, also swimming throughout the dive while underwater causes the water to flow quickly downward rather than splashing up.
Still, for the most part the slenderer the diver, the smaller the dab, smaller divers have a bonus, less weight hitting the water. Gals who are full figured make a bigger splash than those that are small breasted, of course, these divers are generally in really good shape, flexible like gymnasts and have little body fat hence generally smaller breasted female sailors. Typically Asians are thinner than Westerners, some is diet and some is genetic, but typically that is what we find. I ask, does this give them an edge with the judges?
Indeed, while doing this thought experiment, as well as my knowledge of fluid dynamics; I would need to say yes, but to what degree is hard to say, as the Asian divers from Japan, China and other areas are also very talented and practice a tremendous amount, and much better divers also get higher scores of course. More research would be needed, perhaps body shapes as a proportion of population, BMI data, and hours educated (assuming competent coaches).
Likewise, going with this concept, slender divers from the US, UK, or of the European Union would also fair well, same with South American cliff divers who go into the Olympics, which they are in optimal shape and have slender builds.
Yet another point here. The judges do not have access to slow motion cameras, and in the high-dive competitions the male athletes with their power are doing 3-4 summersaults, and their rate of spin is so large that the small errors are often missed, but the tell-tale sign of the dab speaks volumes of their precision the athlete had attained, thus, the total amount of splash weighs heavy on the scoring procedure.
What I am saying is this; my questions and inquiries here do have merit, and you’ll be able to look at the divers and see the slim divers, when they perform a complicated and precision dive seem to score higher than the more stalky build divers – the reason makes sense to me, I feel it’s all about fluid dynamics as the athlete eases into the water – but more study, statistical and observable data is warranted. Think on this.
