The problem with diving

I love watching diving at the Olympics but there is one thing that has always annoyed me - and that is the fact that pre-pubescent Chinese girls tend to have an unfair advantage. Much of the judging seems to revolve around the size of the splash made. For girls who are shaped like a chopstick a perfect entry is a lot easier than for the girls who have hips and boobs.

My suggestion would be to incorporate into the degree of difficulty some sort of handicapping based on bra size. This would at least give the chunky Canadian chick a chance. Failing that they could make the last compulsory dive a bomb where the object is to dislodge as much water as possible. Just imagine having the Aussie 30 points behind going into the last round but pulling out a massive bomb to win - there wouldn't be a better gold medal ever!
