Olympic swimming

As predicted, the tallest swimmers are getting the gold medals. Yet people still tell me that it is all a matter of skill and training. Unless a 1.5 metres tall man wins a gold medal in the swimming events, I am not going to be convinced. Or is there a way of training swimmers to become 2 metres tall?

If success in swimming and some other events is primarily a matter of inheritance, then the games are the equivalent of a human vegetable show and of no more consequence.
