Abstract

INTRODUCTION: "Splash control" is a key element of water entry technique in competitive diving. This process starts from the initial contact of a diver's body with the water surface until complete entry of the rest of the body into the water. The purpose of this study was to establish the most effective hand pattern and body posture that can achieve the best “splash control” to minimize water splash.
