Diving is an internationally recognized sport and one of the most popular spectator sports at the Olympic Games. Diving is also a recreational pastime enjoyed throughout the world.
Diving competitions typically consist of three disciplines: 1 meter and 3 meter springboards, and the platform (at varied heights, but 10 meters in World Championships & Olympics competition). In competition, divers must perform a set number of dives according to specific requirements, including somersaults and twists, and they are judged on how well they complete all aspects and requirements of the dive as well as the amount of splash created during entry into the water.
