Did you know?

  • Judges award a score out of 10 for each dive which is adjusted to take into account the dive’s degree of difficulty.
  • Eight gold medals are on offer, evenly split between men and women.
  • Events consist of individual and synchronised competitions in both the 3m springboard and 10m platform.
  • In the synchronised diving events, pairs of athletes dive in tandem and are also assessed for their level of synchronisation.
  • Diving made its Olympic debut in 1904 and a women's event was added eight years later, making it one of the first Olympic sports to incorporate events for both sexes.
