ABOUT THE EVENTS
The first Olympic competitions differed from those which exist nowadays, notably with respect to the height of the platforms and springboards. The diving programme has been relatively stable since the 1928 Games in Amsterdam: men and women take part in 10-metre high-dive and 3-metre springboard events. In 2000, the Sydney Games witnessed the entrance of synchronised diving on both the springboard and the platform. Other events in the Summer Olympics include water polo, swimming, gymnastics, track, surfing, skateboarding, etc.
