Diving


Competitive diving originated at the end of the 19th century. Dives are made from a set height above specially constructed pools, from either springboards (1 m and 3 m) or from a platform (10 m). Goal is to perform a set of dives, consisting of making somersaults and twists in various orientations. Divers are judged on whether they completed all aspects of the dive, the conformance of their body to the requirements of the nominated dive, the amount of splash created by their entry into the water, and the difficulty factor of the dive. In the 1990's the synchronized events were added to the championship programs. Diving is governed by the Fédération International de Natation Amateur, which was founded in 1908 and governes all aquatics sports. For more info see Wikipedia.
