Olympic diving boards come in two heights: 3 metres and 10 metres. A springboard is a 3-meter diving board, whereas a platform is a 10-meter diving board. The springboard has a non-slip surface and is adjustable for more or less spring. It is at least 4.8 metres long and a half-meter broad.
Men’s synchronised diving, women’s synchronised diving, men’s springboard diving, and women’s springboard diving are the four Olympic events on the 3-meter springboard as of the 2012 Olympics. Men’s synchronised diving, women’s synchronised diving, men’s platform diving, and women’s platform diving are among the events on the 10-meter springboard. The front dive, back dive, reverse dive, inward dive, twist, and arm stand are all Olympic diving styles available on both diving boards.
Springboard and platform events have been included in the Olympic Games since the 1908 London Games, with women competing in diving events for the first time at the 1912 Stockholm Games.
