The Asian American Pipeline in Figure Skating

Now imagine if the International Olympic Committee were to take a page from Harvard's playbook and proceed to multiply a "likeability" factor to each of the skater's scores, penalizing each Asian American by 30% in order to promote diversity in the competition.

Why do so many Asians get into figure skating?  At the skate classes I see when I'm at the rink, it's typically 90% Asian children in the figure skating classes.
