MYSTERY SOLVED: DIVERS hang out in a hot tub after they compete at the Olympics because it’s warm in there.
“No matter how hot it is, water evaporating is going to cool you down. They need to stay warm. And so they just jump into the hot tub. It’s just a quick relaxation but it also gets warm water on you. And once you dry that off, then you basically stay warm between dives.”
It’s warm, feels nice. Geller added that they still have to towel off after the hot tub so they don’t slip on the diving board.
