The inhabitants Dinar Alps are currently among the highest nations in the world. An interesting fact is that there are significant regional differences in the given parameter (Grasgruber et al., Pineau et al., 2005). The mapping of regional differences in body growth has not yet been done in detail, although it may be a crucial key to clarifying this phenomenon. We assume that regional differences in body height have primarily genetic roots but they can also be caused by socioeconomic factors. Our research will, if realized, include, the collection of data on parental education and basic economic information on individual regions. The goal of the anthropological project in Dalmatia is to realize the height diagnosis in boys at the age of 18 and to map the regional differences. Body height is a limiting factor for a number of sports industries in terms of possible elite achievements. The criteria for choosing sports talents for a wide range of disciplines are calculated using the given parameter (Palao et al, 2008). In terms of the accumulation of anthropological potential for selected sports, Dalmatia could be an exclusive area.
