Why second generation Asian usuallly shorter than first generation?
While there's not much difference for other origins, it is interesting to observe that new students who just come from Korea China and Japan, are usually much taller and physical stronger than their buddies who were born here with parents from those countries.
I just found those three countries won huge number of Olympic medals every four years, while you seldom see any second generation Asians representing Canada or US in Olympics. We also see a great number of east Asian players in Premier league, bundesliga, La Liga, while you hardly spot any Asian guys playing soccer here.
Any particular reason?
