Divers get marks for degree of difficulty as they hit the water.
Jose Mourinho understands the principle only too well.
It was the reason the Special One wanted to be extra special by returning to the Premier League and lift the title again.
None of this cantering towards a crown as per the norm in some European countries. Only the thrills of a roller coaster was good enough for the 52-year-old as he celebrated in a style so laid-back, for a moment it looked as if his interviewer would have to get down on the floor.
The Blues secured their fourth league title with a 1-0 win over a dogged Crystal Palace after leading the table since the end of August.
It was a third win at Stamford Bridge for Mourinho, who has also lifted the league trophy in Spain, Italy and Portugal.
"When I came back I knew that I was coming back to the most difficult league to win in the world of football," he said.
"I can say it's very difficult, because the Premier League is changing and everything gets stronger, it's impossible to be beat some teams 8-0 or 6-0.
"I could be smarter and like other mangers choose teams and countries where it's easy to be champions, where they can enjoy calmly their success.
"I choose a country where it's difficult to win and a club without a big tradition of winning Premier League titles because the last one was in 2010. I choose a difficult job."
Mourinho also stressed how much his players deserved the title, as they extended their lead at the top to a remarkable 16 points, with three games to go.
"Finally we can breathe, relax and enjoy. We can look back and see how much we deserve to be champions," he added.
"I knew the work ethic would be there and the spirit would be there. The mentality in key moments in the season was there. I thought we had everything to win the title.
"Every title is a consequence of hard work and a reason to be happy and proud.
"From day one to today nobody gave us anything. Everything we got we deserved."
