Olympic Diving Schedule 2021 Live Stream Info for Men, Women’s Games: Diving is one of the sporting programs at the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games. Best athletes from all across the world will perform at the event, where they will chase for a total of eight medals. Men’s and Women’s category each will compete for four medals, including two 3m springboard and two 10m platform events.
Here we will take a look at some of the top important things about the Olympics 2021 Diving sports program.
In the 1904 Games at St.Louis, Diving made its Olympic debut and thereafter appeared at every Olympic game. The athletes were declared the winner based on who dove to the greatest depth underwater from a standing, ground-level dive. At the London, 1908 Olympics plunge-diving was replaced by the springboard to increase spectator interest.
Women’s diving and plain high diving were added in the 1912 Stockholm Olympics. However, as no acrobatic movers were allowed, after the 1924 Paris event, the program was dropped. Synchronized diving was first introduced at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. China has won a total of 40 Olympic Gold medals and in the record table, it stands at second position behind the United States with 49 Medals. Pat McCormick is the most successful driver in the Olympic history with 4 golds alongside Greg Louganis (4golds, 1 silver) from the USA and China’s Fu Mingxia (4 golds, 1 Silver).
