Would a good swimmer be able to pull this off without injury?

Hello,

If you scroll down third image it shows a waterfall over a dam.

Question:

As a good swimmer, if you approached the falls with your feet first and went over the falls. Would you be able to make the trip and not suffer some sort of injury?

    Probably not. An individual's skill at swimming wouldn't come into play here. An olympic-caliber swimmer wouldn't have much of advantage over a regular person given the immense forces in play.
