Women better divers then men? After an exhausting study at Woods Hole Dr. Christian Ballard concludes that women were better divers then men. Using double blind studies with hundreds of test dives (with both two person buddy teams (one women and one
man) and three person buddy teams(one woman and two men and two women and one men) the conclusion of the scientist at Woods Hole were that women were much better divers then men.
Dr. Ballard said “ that he found the reason for a woman’s better performance as a diver were both physical and technical.” Dr. Ballard went on to say “Diving is done in a wet environment and is usually don’t in a prone position”
Dr. Ballard, the men, and the women in the double blind studies found that women always performed better then men when they were in a prone position and when they were very very wet.
Dr. Ballard went on to say “that more studies were needed, and that he planned to make this his lifes work”.
